Parish Ministry in a Hispanic Community by Charles W. Dahm, OP
Parish Ministry in a Hispanic Community is a book written by St. Pius V's former pastor and current associate pastor, Charles W. Dahm, OP. Published in 2004 by Paulist Press, the book tells the story of St. Pius V and how the ministries and pastoral services developed during Fr. Chuck's time at the parish.
The opening line of the book sums it up: "This book has a single topic: pastoral ministry in a predominantly Mexican Catholic parish, a community at prayer and in service, a community of faith that celebrates life even as it struggles for a better life for its people."
In May 2005 the Catholic Press Association honored this work with the First Place Award in the category of pastoral ministry.
