The problem to be examined in this study is the relationship between a pastor’s leadership style and the organizational structure of the parish. It will focus attention especially on the pastor as a professional in a complex organization called the Roman Catholic Church. The parish, as a unit in this organization, has a variety of organizational structures. It is the position of this writer that these differences can, in part, be explained in terms of sociological variables.
