Priestly Ministry In Multiple Parishes

by Katarina Schuth. Liturgical Press, 2006.
Large priestly ministry

Katarina examines the growing phenomenon of Roman Catholic priests serving multiple parishes. Based on her extensive research and in-depth interviews with pastors, the author offers a variety of models for pastoral and lay leadership in more than one parish. Her interviews with pastors also identified the essential factors that are necessary to sustain strong leadership and vitality within a cluster of parishes. Her research is amplified by the on the ground stories and experiences of pastors she personally interviewed. This is an excellent resource for parishes, dioceses and, in particular, pastors who find themselves serving more than one parish for the first time.
