This book does not contain a list of rules to be studied and remembered. Instead, it addresses issues in pastoral ministry that can sometimes be unspoken, encouraging dialogue, reflection, and honest self-examination of those involved in parish work. 

The hope is that the themes addressed, which are arranged alphabetically, will give ordained ministers the courage to share challenges and difficult situations they face with colleagues, creating fraternal collaboration.

It offers practical guidance in key areas including: administration and finance, confession and spiritual direction, homiletics, building on each other’s work, and celebrating the sacraments.
