Our Catholic faith teaches that we should experience new life, abundant joy, and exuberant hope. Yet sadly, many of our parishes lack any of these.
Drawing from decades of experience and service to over a hundred parishes, Deacon Keith Strohm breaks down the often complex and overwhelming task of parish renewal using a simple-to-understand framework that can help put your community on the path to vitality.
Whether you’ve just begun the journey toward parish renewal or your parish is well on its way toward new life and mission, this book will provide critical insights and tools to help you on the way.
“Ablaze gets to the heart of the matter in challenging parish and diocesan leadership to step up and, in spite of the cost, lead a transformation of the culture of their organizations.” —from the foreword by FR. JAMES MALLON, author of Divine Renovation: Bringing Your Parish from Maintenance to Mission
