BIOGRAPHY

Since Finbarr M Corr came from Ireland to the US in 1960 as a missionary priest, he has led a very full life. His ministry included working with inner-city youth and the adults of Northern New Jersey as well as counseling engaged and married couples. From his early years in Paterson, NJ, he was not just tolerant of other cultures and religions, but built bridges of communication and trust among people so that together they could work together for a better world.

After 28 joy-filled years as a Catholic priest, Finbarr resigned the priesthood to marry Laurie Hutton. He continued his ministry as marriage and family therapist, professor and writer. An active Rotarian, he now fosters dialogue between Muslims, Jews and Christians as a step towards world peace and understanding.

Finbarr many readers enjoy his Irish wit, the insights into relationships that he offers, and the way in which he encourages all not to be inhibited by life's obstacles but to the cross the bridge to a more fulfilling life.

Broken Promises

With his skill as an Irish storyteller that was vividly evident in his prior books, Finbarr M Corr Ed. D., a former priest, reveals an important new window on what he describes as ‘the Church’s third major crisis since Jesus Christ established it on Simon Peter, the Rock.’ Drawing on decades of vital experience as a crusading priest, innovative family therapist, and provocative educator and author, Dr. Corr asks if the Church can survive its failure to follow through on the dictates of Vatican Council II which was initiated by Pope John XXIII to ‘open up the windows of the church and let in some fresh air.’

Boldy written, Broken Promises is an eloquent work that offers wise guidance to people of all faiths.

Finbarr Corr has written a book from the passion of his life and the depth of his pastorial eperience with people. Many readers, committed to Church reform, will find themselves and their hopes in these pages.
