We discuss rebuilding parishes with Fr. James Mallon.


Divine Renovation Parish Renewal  

Highly acclaimed for his work with parish renewal and the New Evangelization, Fr. James Mallon shares with us the many ways for bringing our parishes to life. Through humorous and colorful stories, Mallon challenges us to rethink our models of parish life, from membership-based communities to assemblies of disciples of Jesus who proclaim and share the good news with all peoples. Accessible and engaging, Divine Renovation turns to the Church’s many writings on evangelization and mission so as to articulate practical ways for injecting new life into our parishes.

Fr. James Mallon is the episcopal vicar for parish renewal and leadership support for the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth in Nova Scotia, Canada, and founder of Divine Renovation ministry. He is the author of the bestselling Divine Renovation: Bringing Your Parish from Maintenance to Mission as well as the Divine Renovation Guidebook, and coauthor of Unlocking Your Parish: Making Disciples, Raising Up Leaders with Alpha. His newest book is Divine Renovation Beyond the Parish.
