Description

Winner of two 2014 Catholic Press Awards: Pastoral Ministry (First Place) and Design and Production (Honorable Mention). 

Drawing on the wisdom gleaned from thriving mega-churches and innovative business leaders while anchoring their vision in the Eucharistic center of Catholic faith, Fr. Michael White and lay associate Tom Corcoran present the compelling and inspiring story to how they brought their parish back to life.

Rebuilt: Awakening the Faithful, Reaching the Lost, and Making Church Matter 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 to Catholics, and 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. White and Corcoran invite all Catholic leaders to share the vision, borrow their strategies, and rebuild their own parishes. They offer a wealth of guidance for anyone with the courage to hear them.

  • “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. 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!”

  • “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.”

  • “A fresh approach.”

    Rebuilt is an excellent resource for parishes seeking new ideas and a fresh approach to bringing the faithful closer to Christ in the third millennium.”

    Rebuilt is much needed and well written. White and Corcoran are stunningly honest, insightful about the real problems facing parishes today, and passionate about helping your parish become the best version of itself.”
