Sinden.org is proud to bring you this multi-part series of Episcopal Cathedrals and their distance from Starbucks stores. Or perhaps it is a series about Starbucks stores and their distance to Episcopal Cathedrals -- for, you understand, in most cases the cathedrals predate the stores.
Using field agents and survey crews (well, Wikipedia, Starbucks.com and Google Maps anyway) we have worked tirelessly to bring you this valuable resource.
We begin in Province I (New England). Province I includes seven diocese and contains the oldest (Connecticut; think Samuel Seabury, the first American Episcopal bishop) and the largest (Massachusetts; 194 congregations, 77,000 members) in the Episcopal Church.
|Diocese||Cathedral||Dist to SBUX|
|Connecticut||Christ Church, Hartford||0.2 mi (185 Asylum St)|
|Maine||Church of St Luke, Portland||0.3 mi (594 Congress St)|
|Massachusetts||Church of St Paul, Boston||0.3 mi1 (12 Winter St)|
|Rhode Island||St John's,3 Providence||0.4 mi (1 Financial Plaza)|
|Vermont||Church of St. Paul, Burlington||0.3 mi4 (2072 Burlington Town Ctr)|
|Western Massachusetts||Christ Church, Springfield||1.0 mi (1089 E Columbus Ave)|
1. This would be 1.3 mi in the car since the one way streets in Boston are nefarious. But really it would be a two and a half block walk.
2. New Hampshire is one of nineteen domestic dioceses that has no cathedral (the others being Alaska, Central Gulf Coast, East Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Eastern Oregon, Fort Worth, Georgia, Navajoland, Nevada, North Carolina, Northern Michigan, Northwest Texas, Rochester, Southern Virginia, Southwestern Virginia, Tennessee, West Virginia, Western Michigan).
3. No website? Not cool.
4. Google doesn't understand this address, but Starbucks does.
Well, we did pretty well distance-wise until we got to the end.
Average distance from an Episcopal Cathedral to a Starbucks store in Province I is .4167 mi.
Join us next month when we explore Province II (New York & New Jersey).
