International priests bring their unique enthusiasm, talents, and pastoral care to parishioners all over the United States. Essential to the pastoral ministry of the Church, they find great joy in their work.

But these joys come with challenges, ranging from language barriers to homesickness to cultural misunderstandings and more.

Through in-depth research and data from a variety of sources, researchers from the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) provide insight into:

  • The history of international priests serving the United States
  • The current situation and emerging trends
  • How and why these decisions are made about bringing priests from outside the United States to serve in parishes here
  • The highs and lows of their acculturation and ministry
  • How to welcome and ease the transition for these men and the parishes they serve

The research presented in this one-of-a-kind book will help everyone-bishops, priests, Church leaders, and all laity-to understand and appreciate the ministry of these men and learn how to work together even more effectively.
