RECONCILING PARISH, THE by Patrick Brennan ($14.95)

RCL: 0-89505-765-4

In this resource book for parish staffs and leaders, Fr. Brennan addresses a subject that is often ladened with difficulty: a need for parishes to engage in a ministry of reconciliation to returning and alienated members.

This thought-provoking analysis recommends a blending of RCIA and the ancient Order of Penitents into a remember, return and rebirth process that gives greater care and ministry to the hurt or alienated members of the Church. An excellent companion book to The Evangelizing Parish, this book includes model sessions to help the reconciling parish focus on the mysteries of the Creed and an appendix composed of adaptations of the RCIA for this reconciliation process.
