Hundredfold: A Guide to Parish Vocation Ministry
Hundredfold: A Guide to Parish Vocation Ministry, by Rhonda Gruenewald, provides step-by-step guidance on how to carry out dozens of vocation-oriented activities, from powerful Holy Hours to innovative ways to support seminarians and inspire altar servers. It’s written for ordinary Catholics in ordinary parishes who want to inspire an extraordinary new generation of priests and religious.
Hundredfold goes beyond the nuts-and-bolts of simply running vocation activities, offering wisdom about how to start and sustain a healthy ministry. The author describes each phase of developing a strong vocations ministry, from start up to maturation. For example, if readers are starting a brand-new committee, they’ll form realistic expectations about what they can accomplish in the first couple of years. Existing committees, such as longstanding Serra Clubs, will gain a new vision and fresh ideas for their continued ministry.
The book is supported by a dynamic new web site, vocationministry.com, chock-full of practical ideas, materials, videos, and other resources that can be downloaded and customized for each parish. For example, readers will be able to easily access prayer cards, bulletin inserts, coloring pages, and more.
Whether you’re working with a few people in your home parish, or are part of a network of vocation committees in your diocese, Hundredfold is a goldmine of real-life wisdom and practical ideas.
