It’s our first episode! Join Jim Friend as he visits with parishioners at Church of the Nativity in Timonium, Maryland, and their pastor, Fr. Michael White, and the Director of Finances, Brandon Hollern. In 2013 Fr. White and Michael Corcoran wrote the very popular book Rebuilt: The Story of a Catholic Parish. Since then, their story has captured the imaginations of parishes all around the country who are learning how this parish of 1,200 turned into a parish that serves 4,000 people on the weekend and how they raised over $12 million towards a major expansion project to serve their congregation.
This is part one of our two-part episode, which includes interviews with Fr. White, Brandon and parishioners Tony, Beth, Jen, and Elizabeth. Jim was so grateful and inspired to attend Mass and participate in what they call the “weekend experience” during Ministry Weekend.
