Father Joe: Life Stories of a Hustler Priest

  • Father Joe Carroll's Memoir - Authorized
  • Written by Kathryn Cloward
  • ISBN Paperback: 978-1970163629
  • 280 pages

Is there such a thing as a hustler priest? Yes! Father Joe Carroll earned that label early in his career—and it stuck. Always a wheeler and dealer, starting from his childhood in the Bronx, his ability to get things done served him well in developing what’s now called Father Joe’s Villages in San Diego, California.

This book of stories from Father Joe’s interesting life is heart-warming and heart-wrenching, while also head-shaking and hilarious. From his antics as a youth and a seminarian to breaking new ground and crossing the lines when necessary to get things done to support neighbors in need experiencing homelessness, you’ll come to understand that “hustler” does suit Father Joe well. And he wouldn’t have it any other way.
