Great Catholic Parishes

William E. Simon Jr.
Ave Maria Press, 2016
224 pages, paperback $17.95

If you’re attending Legatus’ 2017 Summit in February, you’ll want to pick this book up now. Simon will be a featured speaker. The businessman and philanthropist has been influenced by the dynamic and inspiring Catholic parishes he’s attended. In 2012, he founded Parish Catalyst, an organization devoted to researching and supporting the health and development of Catholic parishes.

Simon’s book, subtitled A Living Mosaic, explores his insights and the success stories of 244 vibrant parishes to show what makes them great. Each chapter closes with either crucial takeaways or a summary of practical challenges that will help pastors and leaders focus on growth and excellence.
