Product Description

 Holiness is the work of the church, according to chapter five of the greatest Constitution on the Church from the Vatican II. It is, therefore, appropriate for us pastoral leaders to consider how we can make our parishes into "holiness center" that highlight this call to holiness. Parishes that do work find themselves utterly re-energized: participation levels and financial giving both rise; apathy and absenteeism decline. 

 

In A Culture of Holiness for the Parish, author and pastoral leader Bill Huebsch helps us imagine and plan for how a parish can launch and sustain a culture in which the call to holiness is sounded often and people are helped to respond. This would be a culture of self-giving love and dying to self; one of corporal and spiritual works of mercy; one in which people's hearts are dedicated to the poor; a culture of shared faith, prayer, fasting and alms giving- all grounded in the liturgical and catechetical life of the parish.

 

All scripture passages in this book are taken from The Message: Catholic/ Ecumenical Edition by Eugene Peterson with additional translations by William Griffin.

  1. Bill Huebsch comes through again 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 31st 2017

    Old saying Hey listen church leaders are always looking for practical ways to help the parishioners be spiritually healthy. Bill Huebsch, who has been working in Parish process for many years, comes through again with this fine book. I am passing it on to my pastoral minister who may pass it on to the pastor.
