An interesting perspective on parish life ...

From time to time I receive a review copy of a new book from Family Publications.

This time the book is called 'Diary of a City Priest' and is a compilation of articles by the popular 'Pastor Iuventus' who writes a weekly column in The Catholic Herald.

As it 'says on the tin' to coin a common phrase, it is the diary entries of a city priest, although it could apply equally well to a country priest or even a priest in a suburb like Banstead! It gives an insight into the highs and lows of the ministry of a parish priest and daily life in a parish.

'Pastor Iuventus'
is a parish priest in the Archdiocese of Southwark and is currently serving in a parish in London. He is also chaplain to local hospitals and a school chaplain.

The book may be found in Christian book shops and ordered from Family Publications.
