Witnessing the renaissance of spirituality in America, an eighteen-month series of reports on various aspects of the life of a multicultural suburban Roman Catholic parish looked deeply into the spirituality of one Christian community, spoke deeply to people searching for their own spirituality—and won a Pulitzer for beat reporting. Now gathered into one volume, with a new chapter on parishes nationwide and vivid photographs of a parish family as it celebrates the liturgical seasons, the sacraments, the RCIA process, life in the rectory, and life in the homes of those who fill the pews, Parish! is a blueprint for a Catholic community that is fully human, fully alive.
