A narthex is the main gathering area or lobby of a church. It’s where conversation takes place, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds.
That’s what this blog aspires to be — a spot where you can join a conversation about news and happenings related to the Archdiocese of Baltimore and the Catholic world at large.
Stay with The Narthex for inspirational posts about people who live their faith every day. You’ll also get a frontline perspective on archdiocesan news you won’t find anywhere else.
I have to give a shout out to Matt Palmer, my good friend and colleague at The Catholic Review. He came up with the name for this blog. It’s the perfect fit for what I hope to accomplish here. I hope this blog will be as fun as it is informational.
Let’s get going.
