“IF FORMER CATHOLICS WERE CONSIDERED A DENOMINATION, IT WOULD BE THE SECOND-LARGEST DENOMINATION IN THE U.S.”—from A Church on the Move Many statistics on the Catholic Church today are sobering, and the future of the Church can seem bleak indeed. The average parish often feels helpless to do anything that might help turn the tide and revitalize the Church. 
 
But best-selling author Joe Paprocki insists that there is good news: with the right plans in place, the Catholic Church—and the local parish specifically—will not only survive, but thrive. A Church on the Move offers 52 practical strategies for moving parishes forward, principally by focusing on the one thing the Church can offer that the world-at-large cannot: Jesus Christ. 
 
Each chapter begins with a quote from Pope Francis, and each helpful strategy falls within one of five key categories: how a Church on the move thinks, functions, worships, forms disciples, and engages the world. Every chapter takes an honest look at a particular problem in the Church before moving to a creative, redemptive, and achievable solution. 
 
A Church on the Move brings to the parish level the great themes of Pope Francis’ papacy— mission, mercy, and evangelization—and replaces despair with a profound hope for the future of the Catholic Church.

Review:

"Written in passionate, but plainspoken terms, this book is a blueprint for real change."
- Fran Rossi Szpylczyn

"This book made me truly hopeful about the church and its future. It is important reading for everyone in church ministry about how parishes can enact creative and practical changes in the ways it functions, worships, forms disciples, and engages in the world. This is the reforming plan of Pope Francis put into bite-sized, achievable pieces at the level of parish life. Every parish staff ought to read and discuss together one of its 52 chapters every week for the coming year." - Stephen J. Binz, author of Saint Peter
