There are many challenges faced by clergy working in pastoral situations. Bishops, priests, and deacons often find they are in need of guidance, a reminder that they are part of the Universal Church, that they are not alone.

Now a parish priest is offering guidance in the form of a Rule, a code of practice similar to those of religious communities, but written specifically for clergy serving in pastoral ministry.

Addressing themes both practical and spiritual, A Rule for the Clergy considers a number of issues faced by clergy, including personal prayer, homiletics, the difficulties in being alone, visiting the sick and housebound, celibacy, and obedience. By creating a Rule, it offers clergy the chance to feel a sense of fraternal collaboration.

Filled also with inspirational quotes, reflective art in full colour, and original prayers written by the author, this book is a must-have for all clergy and the perfect gift for parish priests and deacons.
