Ethics in Pastoral Ministry

by Richard M. Gula S.S.. Paulist Press, 1996.

This book by a Roman Catholic priest presents a framework within which he explores the character of ethical pastoral ministry. He holds up the Christ-like vocation of ministry and the integrity it requires: "We act out of who we are." He examines the issues of power, sexuality, and confidentiality in pastoral ministry and offers a sample Code of Professional Ministry Responsibility.
