Author: Michael White
Binding: Paperback

Our parish wasn't working, said the leaders of a Catholic church in Maryland. They didn't know how to fix it. Drawing on the wisdom gleaned from thriving mega-churches and innovative business leaders while anchoring their vision in the Eucharistic centre of Catholic faith, Fr. Michael White and lay associate Tom Corcoran present the compelling and inspiring story to how they brought their parish back to life.
