Parish Priest

Father Michael McGivney and American Catholicism
  • By Julie M. Fenster, Douglas Brinkley
Product Description
The first commercial, in-depth biography of the American-born Roman Catholic priest who may well be declared a saint.

"Father McGivney's vision remains as relevant as ever in the changed circumstances of today's Church and society."--Pope John Paul II

In a time of discrimination and poverty for Catholics across America, Father Michael McGivney (1852-1890), began a legacy of hope that continues to this day. Called to action in 1882 by his sympathy for these suffering people, this dynamic yet tenderhearted man--the son of Irish immigrants-- founded the Knights of Columbus, an organization that has saved countless families from destitution.

At heart, Father McGivney was the model of an American parish priest: Beloved by children, trusted by adults, and regarded as a "positive saint" by the elderly in his New Haven, CT, parish--a truly holy man whose life and works are still celebrated today.
