Catholic Hipster Handbook

New from Ave Maria Press comes the Catholic Hipster Handbook. According to the publisher's blurb, the book is about "yearning to learn more about the faith by seeking out 'Catholic cool'—overlooked saints, forgotten prayers and feast days, and traditional practices long set aside by mainstream believers."

The book sounds interesting. But it reminded me that four years ago I posted about a Catholic ad campaign to promote Jesus as "the original hipster."

So I detect a weird recurring theme: catholics trying to rebrand themselves as hipsters.

Alex, it is not restricted to the Catholics. I was raised Protestant (Southern Baptist Conference) and this type of outreach to the youth would appear every few years. And though I haven't attended a worship service in years (I'm now afraid that the building would collapse in on me in punishment of my sins) I suspect that little has changed in the message.

So, do hipster Catholics insist on artisanal communion bread and organic wine?
