Church, Chicago-Style

Church, Chicago-Style is a celebration of the history of active leadership and lay involvement in the Catholic Church over the last fifty years. By profiling some of the grassroots figures in the Chicago Church and excerpting some of their key writings, author William L. Droel has painted a picture of the passion and personalities that have made the Catholic spirit in Chicago admired and acclaimed around the world.

Included in this book are writings by and profiles of well-known church leaders:

  • Sr. Patricia Crowley, OSB
  • Russell Barta
  • Msgr. John Egan
  • Fr. Dennis Geaney, OSA
  • Msgr. George Higgins
  • Ed Marciniak
  • Mary Irene Zotti
  • National Center for the Laity



Maybe you've experienced much of what the Catholic Church has to offer. The dogma, liturgy, sacramental system, devotion to Mary, and calendar of saints is the same for Catholics around the world. But if you've never been to a Catholic Mass in Chicago, then you've never experienced the Church quite like William L. Droel.



Church, Chicago-Style examines the unique legacy of the Catholic Church in Chicago. Discover (or re-discover) the vibrancy that the Catholic Church can have, has had, and could have again.




WILLIAM L. DROEL is the pastoral associate at Sacred Heart Church in Palos Hills, IL, and former adjunct to the Catholic Theological Union. His many books include John Paul II's Gospel of Work and Finding My Way in a Grace-filled World.
