"What do you say to a good parent, grieving over a grown child who has left the Catholic faith of childhood? How many times do pastoral ministers face this heartbreaking situation? Dr. Buchner has prayed over this challenge, has conducted workshops for parents, and now has enriched us all by putting the results of these reflections and experiences in a book, St. Monica Ministry. Thanks Dr. Jack!"
