The vicar spots me and waves. I wave back, feeling guilty that I never go to church with Eddie and the kids. Some bloody Commie, my husband is. One week he's up here, at Holy Trinity, the next he's marching the kids off down theSally Army, then they're over Whitfield Tabernacle. I got a job to keep up with it all, I can tell you. I might start going with them now though, if I can find the time.
Does the words in bold type mean keep remembering the names of the churches? Please.

Not really. It seems to mean she has trouble keeping up with his religious convictions - remembering what his present religious affiliation is. It could also include knowing where her kids are at any particular time. "With it all" implies everything associated with it.
But you have the right idea about the meaning of the idiom.
