Through pastoral insights, moving stories, theological insights, and practical suggestions, this book offers a vision and road map for parish teams to examine and renew pastoral ministry in today's world.
In this practical, visionary book, Father Robert Hater draws a roadmap for parishes to examine and renew pastoral ministry in today's world. The parish of today is much different from the parish of yesteryear, he emphasizes, and for it to stand up to the challenges of the present, it must deepen its spiritual roots, while reaching to the broader church and the world. The author writes for those interested in making their parish a faith-filled community. For this reason, he includes real life stories, pastoral experiences, church directives, theological conclusions, managerial perspectives, and pastoral suggestions. These are blended into a holistic approach that addresses the complex challenges facing parishes. In four parts, the author clarifies his vision of the church. In part one, he examines the history of parishes and the changes society has brought to them. Part two roots the parish vision in Catholic evangelization by stressing hospitality and welcome. Part three discusses living out the vision, centered on the kingdom of God, and part four considers ways to realize the parish vision by addressing practical issues in light of today's cultural challenges. Engaging and enthusiastic, this hands-on guide is a must-read for anyone engaged in parish ministry or interested in making the parish a truly Christian community.
