Publishers Description
Most spiritual memoirs are written by religious professionals. The American Catholic Experience series is an innovative new collection of books exploring the stories of individual Catholics in the United States as they reflect on what it has meant as Catholic laity to live out their faith amidst the joys and challenges of their daily lives?on their jobs, with their families and friends, and in their communities and churches. In Finding My Way in a Faith-Filled World, a memoir of William Droel's search to discover his calling, Droel documents his move from New York to the Marquette Park neighborhood of Chicago and his involvement with urban parishes and community organizations there.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Elevating Neighborhood to a Sacrament  May 8, 2005
Droel, a husband, father, pastoral minister, and community organizer, has lived most of his adult life in Chicago, a city shaped by the 1910 diocesan plan calling for one parish per square mile. This Catholic presence and the events of the 1960s, including U.S. political upheaval and Vatican II, played a large role in the vocation Droel describes in his story. "I am not called to evangelize a godless society. I am called to immerse myself in society," he writes.

One of the most uplifting sections is the author's take on the "sacrament of neighborhood," in which he sees the Catholic neighborhood, with its parishes and schools, making a largely unheralded contribution to the political and social health of the country. Despite some exceptions, Droel believes that the Catholic "ghetto" has encouraged open-mindedness and racial tolerance and helped immigrants to assimilate successfully, primarily because of the secure base individuals experience in their parishes.

Droel also addresses such topics as fundamentalism, both inside and outside the Catholic Church, spirituality of work, and the relationship between church and state.
