For fifteen years, the Vincentian Center for Church and Society at St. John's University has been successfully training priests and pastoral leaders in management concepts and skills. Built upon this wealth of experience, A Concise Guide to Catholic Church Management connects the theory of academic training with the hands-on skills of pastoral practice.

Today's pastoral leaders are required to understand effective communications, budgeting, staff management, and legal responsibilities--all through the lens of Catholic values and tradition. This veritable ministry bible offers pastors and administrators ten succinct, informative chapters and is supplemented by free online materials.

About the Author:

The Vincentian Center for Church and Society is located at St. John's University in Jamaica, New York. Its core purpose is connecting the university to the Church and accomplishes this through the use of its Vincentian sponsorship, metropolitan location, and diversified personnel resources.

Review:

"After my first reading of A Concise Guide to Catholic Church Management, I am more anxious to return to this very helpful book. Because of my many years in parish, organizational, and diocesan management, I am certain that the insights offered here will be helpful at every level of the Catholic Church. The book is practical and much more than a self-help guide. I highly recommend this new resource for Church managers." --Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn
"The Vincentian Center for Church and Society at Saint John's University has produced a book that is refreshingly reader-friendly; rooted in Gospel principles; and eminently practical for any priest, deacon, or lay minister entrusted with parochial leadership. Its pastoral/scriptural perspective makes it more than just another generic management manual about skills and techniques, but a guide specifically intended for Catholic leadership. Concepts are presented clearly and chapters conclude with relevant reflection questions and activities, designed to develop and apply the ideas, concepts, and techniques presented." --Most Reverend William Francis Murphy, Bishop of Rockville Centre
"When it comes to the fundamentals of Church management--especially at the parish level--this book is destined to become an indispensable resource. It is well-written, practical, theologically informed, and divided into easily referenced chapters." --Rev. Edward A. Malloy, C.S.C., President Emeritus, University of Notre Dame
"This excellent book is a must-read for lay and ordained leaders faced with the challenging task of management in parishes today. From servant leadership to employment law and accounting procedures, it's all here." --Michael Brough, Director of Planning and Programs, National Leadership Roundtable on Church Management
