Spreadsheet of Every Catholic Church in Chicago

I am working on a project with a friend of mine and it became necessary to discover the location of every Catholic Church in the City of Chicago.

I discovered a list here on the Archdiocese of Chicago Web site. It's perfectly informative, but it doesn't 100% serve my needs, so I copy/ pasted the stuff, made a spreadsheet out of it, added some columns, and started filling it out.

Behold a Complete List of Catholic Churches in Chicago. It has Parish name, Address, Phone/ Fax, Web address, Mass Times, and Notes. I've just started on it, but I've found a number of Web sites that the Archdiocese didn't know about, and I want to compile all of the Mass times into something cohesive.

We've got a lot more on the way-- stay tuned. If you've got info and want access to edit the document, hit me up. Thank you, and God bless America.

You could map it, but I'm sure you are already working on that!

Great Chicago data though, thanks. If only governments would put theirs together this well.
