The Good Catholic Life is taking a short Spring hiatus from live shows until early June. In the meantime, we’re bringing you some of our favorite shows from the past two years. Look for all-new shows to return after June 7.

Today we bring you an encore presentation of our discussion with Fr. Michael White and Tom Corcoran. Church of the Nativity in Maryland has undergone a remarkable renaissance in the past decade and Fr. White and Tom share the story of this turnaround in their new book “Rebuilt”. Scot Landry and Fr. Matt Williams talk to Fr. White and Tom about changing the consumer culture to one of discipleship; simplifying their mission statement to six words encapsulating the Great Commission; the lessons learned from evangelical mega-churches; developing a profile of the “lost sheep” they were seeking; and how the experience of Sunday Mass has been changed to appeal to the unchurched and to give the sense that the parish is waiting to welcome them home.

Complete shownotes may be found on the original airdate’s show page.
