Item description for Parish!: The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Story of One Vibrant Catholic Community by Robert F. Keeler & Ken Spencer...

Overview
Witnessing the renaissance of spirituality in America, an eighteen-month series of reports on various aspects of the life of a multicultural suburban Roman Catholic parish looked deeply into the spirituality of one Christian community, spoke deeply to people searching for their own spirituality - and won a Pulitzer for beat reporting. Now gathered into one volume, with a new chapter on parishes nationwide and vivid photographs of a parish family as it celebrates the liturgical seasons, the sacraments, the RCIA process, life in the rectory, and life in the homes of those who fill the pews, Parish! is a blueprint for a Catholic community that is fully human, fully alive.

Reviews - What do customers think about Parish?

I wanted everyone in my parish to read this book!  Nov 2, 1999
I was so recharged by this book. Robert Keeler has captured the spirit of St Brigid's well through the way he includes many personal sharings of its parishioners. I like the book for capturing the many facets of a parish. Engaging to read. Well-done!

I belong to a parish in Singapore, right across the world from St Brigid, and reading about the vibrancy of St Brigid, did not make be feel disheartened about my own parish; on the contrary, the faith of the people at St Brigid only recharged me and made me feel that my fellow parishioners and I need only go ahead and try....and then let the Holy Spirit do the rest! To the dear sisters and brothers in St Brigid, thank you for showing the way!
