The American Catholic Experience series is an innovative collection of reflections exploring the stories of individual lay Catholics in the United States. The authors reflect on what it has meant to them to live out their faith amidst the joys and challenges of their daily lives on their jobs, with their families and friends, and in their communities and churches.
In this memoir of his search to discover his own calling as a layman, William Droel documents his move from upstate New York to the Marquette Park neighborhood of Chicago and his involvement with lay movements, urban parishes, and community organizations there.
