Overview

You'll find Father Kenny's friendly and helpful book a practical -- and enjoyable -- introduction to the occasionally overwhelming world of day-to-day life in the Roman Catholic Church. Father Kenny draws on his dozens of years of experience as a pastor, campus minister and chaplain to help explain, clarify and introduce you to the Church you've recently become a member of. More than anything else, this book is designed to assist you in the most important matters of your faith -- including how to join a parish, how to go to confession, how to pray the rosary (including the new luminous mysteries), and how to make sense of the sometimes confusing Church liturgical calendar. With a common-sense attitude touched by good humor and patience, Father Kenny presents his book in three parts. Part one deals with "how-to" questions, while part two presents liturgical and devotional customs, questions and issues, especially in the light and tradition of the Second Vatican Council. A collection of common Catholic prayers comprises the Appendix.
