As a Christian ethicist and expert on Catholic social thought, Pat McCormick has developed a national reputation both through his writings and his public appearances. Working with co-author Russell Connors, he has published two very important books on contemporary Christian ethics, Character, Choices, and Community: The Three Faces of Christian Ethics (1998) and Facing Ethical Issues: Dimensions of Character, Choice and Community (2002). 

McCormick’s latest book is entitled A Banqueter’s Guide to the All-Night Soup Kitchen of the Kingdom of God (2004). He writes a monthly column for the magazine U.S. Catholic on Christianity, culture and ethics. For this work, he has twice won the Cardinal Bernardin Communications Award for Professional Excellence.   

As a speaker, McCormick is in great demand. In the past dozen years, he has given over fifty talks, retreats and workshops for parishes, colleges, hospitals, clergy and dioceses around the country.
