"Dr. Richard McCorry made a two-day presentation to our presbyterate on his two topics of expertise: Spirituality during Times of Change and Creating More Welcoming Parishes.  I found his presentations to be engaging and conforming to Catholic teaching.  I would certainly recommend his work to other Catholic Audiences."

Most Rev. Martin Amos

Bishop of Davenport

 

"Dr. McCorry has developed an engaging, informative and grace-filled program.  Both the program and Dr. McCorry personally have helped people use a healthy spirituality to adapt to change and to lead others through times of change.  I highly recommend his work."
