Fr. Michael White and Tom Corcoran

Fr. Michael White and Tom Corcoran will share insights from their book, Rebuilt, which tells the story of how the Church of the Nativity was “brought back to life” when the two leaders combined modern-day communication techniques with traditional Catholic spirituality and the basic Gospel message. Mass attendance at the parish tripled, participation in various parish ministries exploded, and stewardship initiatives flourished.
Father White and Mr. Corcoran also will be presenting tips from Tools for Rebuilding: 75 Really, Really Practical Ways to Make Your Parish Better, their latest publishing collaboration. Tools lays out practical tactics that parish leaders can easily apply to rejuvenate the faith life of parishioners and “make church matter to people in the pews.” (Both books have sold over 100,000 copies jointly.).
