Item Description...
Overview
The priest shortage is resulting in changes in the church. The most common solution to the shortage of priests in the United States is multiple-parish pastoring-that is, having one pastor serve the needs of two, three, or more different parishes at one time. Because it is so widely implemented, there are plenty of inspiring success stories to be shared and helpful examples of pitfalls to be avoided when dealing with changes in the church. In Pastoring Multiple Parishes, readers discover what works and what doesn't when parishes must turn to the method of multiple-parish pastoring. Above all, authors Mark Mogilka and Kate Wiskus help Catholics see that this particular change in the chuch is not something to be dreaded, but rather it is a wonderful opportunity for future stability and growth of the Faith.

A Disappointment  Jun 2, 2009
I had high hopes for this little book, since it was recommended by someone whose judgment I respect. The book's title carries an implied promise that it will address real issues in a practical manner. In my opinion, it does not.
The writers are Organizational Development Experts. I might be wrong, but I got the idea that someone approached the authors and said: "You are OD experts. Write a book about the "pastoring" of multiple parishes. The authors, faced with this challenge, jumped to the well-worn path of OD practice, which has worked such magic in American Industrial organizations, and has made American companies such as GM, Xerox, and Kodak so successful, especially in these latter years.
There are a number of common-sense prescriptions that would be useful in "pastoring multiple parishes", and many of the potential readers of this book need to be reminded of them. The authors should have been content to write a 10-page pamphlet to describe and illustrate such prescriptions. Instead, they brought in a 54-foot trailer of catch phrases and buzzwords, lowered the tailgate, and dumped the whole mess into one big 150-page pile.
Aside from the verbosity, I was irritated by the lack of documentation to back up some of the assertions. I think the authors were advised to talk down to their readers. Too bad. I hope they write again on the same subject -- next time with more experiential data to rely on.
