Transforming the Parish: Models for the Future.

Franciscan Sr. Patricia M. Forster and Jesuit Fr. Thomas P. Sweetser conclude Transforming the Parish: Models for the Future (Sheed & Ward, 241 pages, $14.95 paperback) with 10 imperatives for getting there.

These begin with "ask the folks," continue through "keep the pastor involved" and conclude with "make constant adjustments." They are both insightful and sensible in providing signposts and pointers "that might suggest new ways for being parish." Those with hope who want their vision and agenda fine-tuned will be glad to find this book.
