The three neighborhood congregations in chapter 3 are located in the city of Chicago. St. Nicholas of Tolentine Catholic Church serves a diversifying population and participates in religious and secular organizational networks in order to effect change in both its neighborhood and the greater Southwest Side. On the city’s North Side, St. Jerome Catholic Church responded to the challenges of neighborhood change by participating in a larger geographic strategy of education and membership, including the creation of a multi-campus Catholic academy in a contested process of pan-parochial identity construction. First Christian Church, a Protestant congregation, created a multiracial/ethnic neighborhood congregation on the diversifying Southwest Side. The neighborhood congregations in this chapter have maintained place-based communities and exerted moderate to strong urban impact on their restructured locations.
