Throughout, however, the principal focus is upon locations within the current diocese, with only the more significant developments given for those areas it once included. The parish and mission section (pp. 81-183) is limited to accounts of the fifty parishes and missions still existing within the present diocese. However, there is also a briefly annotated chronological list of all the "parishes, missions, and stations"of the diocese in its three different geographical stages (pp. 67-78). All of these sections attest to the enduring reality of Catholic minority communities scattered in mostly small towns across West Texas, with the recurring challenge of providing them buildings and full-time ministers. …
