Title: EMERGING MODELS OF PASTORAL LEADERSHIP: SHAPING CATHOLIC PARISHES: PASTORAL LEADERS ON THE 21ST CENTURY
Description:
The Emerging Models of Pastoral Leadership Project has been studying the dramatic changes in Catholic parish life. Pastors, lay ministers, and deacons are providing new forms of ministry. Parishioners are taking on more responsibility for their parishes. Fom large parishes with more than 10,000 families to rural parishes ministering to immigrant communities, vibrant parish life is being created in new ways. This resource, edited by Carole Ganim, looks at these changes from the pastoral leader's point of view. Twenty-two priests, deacons, religious, and lay people share first-person accounts of their experiences serving as pastoral leaders in these new situations and new roles. Their inspiring and instructive stories will deepen your understanding of the unique challenges facing twenty-first century parishes today. 174 pages
