Fr. Charles Connor, Pioneer Priests and Makeshift Altars: A History of Catholicism in the Thirteen Colonies

The story of 18th-century English and German Catholicism brought to 13 struggling British colonies by faithful Catholics, and the brave and heroic missionary priests who accompanied them, are brought to life in Fr. Charles Connor‘s latest book. Pioneer Priests and Makeshift Altars: A History of Catholicism in the Thirteen Colonies marry two of the great loves of Fr. Connor, S.T.L., Ph.D.: the Catholic faith, and Early American History. A scholar in both, host Doug Keck observes on EWTN Bookmark, as Fr. Connor shares his research into the mental, physical, and spiritual hardships which the colonists of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York endured on their way to America’s independence from Great Britain in 1789.
