These are times of immense challenge and immense opportunity for the Catholic Church. Consider these trends for the U.S.: Only 30% of Americans raised as Catholic are still practicing; Marriages celebrated in the Church decreased by nearly 60 percent, between 1972 and 2010; and Fully 10% of all adults in America are ex-Catholics. If the Church is to reverse these trends, the evangelizers must first be evangelized–in other words, Catholics in the pew must make a conscious choice to know and follow Jesus before they can draw others to Him. This work of discipleship lies at the heart of this book, a book designed to help Church leaders, parish staff, and all Catholics transform parish life from within. Paper.
