Writing with a winning combination of enthusiasm, compassion, insight and understanding, longtime pastoral minister Carrie Kemp has written a first-rate handbook for welcoming inactive Catholics back to membership or participation in a parish community.
Numbering in the millions, inactive Catholics, whom Kemp calls Seekers, are people looking for purpose and meaning in their lives, and are curious about coming home again to the church from which they have become estranged. She shares the stories of a number of inactive Catholics and then offers a practical. user-friendly and well-detailed plan for establishing a process for welcoming inactive Catholics in the reader's own parish. She discusses controversial issues frankly and honestly without denying the serious challenges that face the church in the millennium.
