Fr. William Byron, SJ, Authors New Book on Parish Leadership

Fr. William Byron, SJ, has released his latest book, Parish Leadership, which provides a strong argument that lay participation in parish leadership will help the Catholic Church in the USA face up to the problem of the empty pews. It also explains how an integration of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching into the way parishes work is the key to parish renewal.

Fr. Byron is a University Professor at Saint Joseph's University. He is past president of The Catholic University of America and the University of Scranton, and has served as interim president of Loyola University in New Orleans. 

Earlier assignments include service as pastor of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Washington, DC and professor of the practice of ethics in the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, where he also held the position of rector of the Georgetown Jesuit Community.
