En este relato fascinante e inspirador, el P. Michael White y su colega laico Tom Corcoran nos cuentan cómo hicieron que su parroquia resucitara. Reconstrucción describe la forma en que ambos fueron aplicando a su situación muchas de las prácticas características de las grandes parroquias exitosas y de los empresarios comprometidos con la innovación; y cuenta también cómo establecieron a la Eucaristía como el punto clave de su estrategia, convencidos de su insustituible protagonismo como centro de la fe católica.
Con este libro, los autores extienden una invitación a los responsables católicos para que compartan su visión, para que apliquen su estrategia y para que reconstruyan sus propias parroquias. Esa es la razón por la cual ponen estas valiosas propuestas a disposición de todo aquel que tenga el valor de escucharlas.
Fr. Michael White and lay associate Tom Corcoran present the compelling and inspiring story to how they brought their parish back to life.
"Rebuilt" is a story of stopping everything and changing focus. When their parish reached a breaking point, White and Corcoran asked themselves how they could make the Church matter to Catholics, and they realized the answer was at the heart of the Gospel. Their faithful response not only tripled their weekend mass attendance, but also yielded increased giving, flourishing ministries, and a vibrant, solidly Catholic spiritual revival. White and Corcoran invite all Catholic leaders to share the vision, borrow their strategies, and rebuild their own parishes. They offer a wealth of guidance for anyone with the courage to hear them.
Fr. Michael White received his bachelors degree from Loyola University Maryland and his graduate degrees in sacred theology and ecclesiology from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. After being ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, he worked for five years as personal secretary to William Cardinal Keeler, who was then archbishop. During that time, he served as the director of the papal visit of Pope John Paul II to Baltimore.
During his tenure as pastor at Church of the Nativity, the church has almost tripled in weekend attendance from 1,400 to over 4,000. More importantly, the commitment to the mission of the Church has grown, evidenced by the significant increase of giving and service in ministry.Thomas Corcoran received his bachelors degree from Loyola University Maryland and completed his graduate work in theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville.
