 "Restoring Trust in the Catholic Parish "
by Marijka Eeuwes Lampard

"We have to do something. We're going to lose the Church as we know it," writes Marijka Lampard.

The Catholic Church has existed for over 20 centuries. It still exists, although broken. It encountered the same problems and issues for decades, and then sex scandals have catapulted the crisis in more recent times.

This book is an honest, unflinching examination of the parishioner culture in the diocese of Buffalo, NY, which is indicative of many other dioceses. Well conceptualized and easy to read, it offers practical solutions and applications to restore hope and faith back to the church. It is a spiritual exploration of the Church pre-Vatican II and the 21st century church in the U.S. and abroad. Purchase at
