Are you concerned about the growing number of people leaving the Catholic Church? Is your parish in need of new ideas to rekindle passion in the faithful and to call new disciples home?
Be inspired by Rebuilt.
Bestselling and award-winning authors Rev. Michael White and his lay associate, Tom Corcoran, share the compelling success story of how they brought their own parish—Church of the Nativity in Timonium, Maryland—back to life. They draw on the examples of thriving megachurches and innovative business leaders while keeping focused on the Gospel and the Eucharistic heart of the Catholic faith.
Rebuilt is a story of stopping everything and changing focus. When their parish reached a breaking point, White and Corcoran asked themselves how they could make the Church matter again. They realized the answer was at the heart of the Gospel. Their faithful response not only tripled their weekend mass attendance, but also yielded increased giving, flourishing ministries, and a vibrant, solidly Catholic spiritual revival.
The want to help you make the Church matter as well, not only to fellow Catholics but also to those currently outside the faith.
The Rebuilt Parish website (rebuiltparish.com) includes a variety of resources for each chapter of the book, including questions for reflection and discussion, videos, White’s blog, and episodes of the Rebuilt Podcast.
These special editions make the perfect gift for your parishioners for Christmas or Easter, a parishwide group study, or for diocesan retreats.

"We have been transformed."
"We have been transformed. Rebuilt is a practical blueprint for how our local Catholic Church has become a growing parish, encouraging the unchurched to join, and challenging long-time parishioners to individual growth. Each weekend we welcome new faces and our familiar faces have new smiles. Rebuilt has helped us make church matter once again."

"It still serves as a guide for our parish vision."
"Rebuilt challenged us to 'make church matter' and to not settle for the status quo. Four years after reading it, it still serves as a guide for our parish vision. No matter what kind of parish you’re in, Rebuilt will remind you that you can begin to grow a healthy parish! I highly recommend this book for parish renewal, motivation, and action!"

"Parishioners have a new-found sense of ownership."
"Parishioners who read Rebuilt have a new-found sense of ownership, dedication, and excitement about the task of rebuilding our parish. Rebuilt charts a path forward and inspires parishioners to be disciples who make disciples."
Rev. Thomas Mahoney
New Roads Catholic Community
"We have seen amazing results!"
"Our parish began adopting the principles and ideas of Rebuilt in 2013 and we have seen amazing results! We now have hundreds of parishioners active in ministry and small groups. Our children's worship has reignited the faith of many of our families. The use of screens in our worship has helped us welcome back those who are returning to church. Rebuilt provides a solid plan for parishes looking for renewal."

St. Pius X Catholic Church
"A must read."
"A must read for anyone serious about parish engagement, membership, and financial and spiritual growth. It should be required reading for pastors, new priests, and parish councils."
"They offer a starting point to address the critical issue of Catholics leaving the Church."
"Essentially a how-to manual, it is easy to read, filled with stories, lists and action items directed at priests, lay ministers, and concerned parishioners. They offer a starting point to address the critical issue of Catholics leaving the Church."
"Credible, down to earth, painfully honest, and often laugh-out-loud funny."
"Credible, down to earth, painfully honest (the truth hurts) and often laugh-out-loud funny, White and Corcoran draw from the own experiences as pastor and lay associate in their Catholic parish. Rebuilt's inspiring story will resonate with anyone who ministers in a parish and with people who participate in parish life in large or minimal ways. Rebuilt will ring true (and without judgment) with intermittent Catholics who only come to church on Christmas and Easter, maybe Ash Wednesday and Palm Sunday, and when they need to initiate their young, marry and bury the dead. Rebuilt's practical, humorous and honest approach offers its readers a fresh approach to the new evangelization that both pastoral teams and parish communities will find exhilarating and irresistible—just the way every experience of Church should be."

"Read Rebuilt and get moving."
"If you've been wondering what you can to do help your parish, you will find suggestions. Read Rebuilt, and get moving. Jesus was serious. Make disciples—starting with yourself and ending with the whole world."
Austin Catholic New Media
"Rebuilt offers useful insights that will be of value to anyone involved in parish ministry, whether or not they think that their parish is a sinking ship."
