Here are details of books by or about worker-priests (and close variants) I know of. Always glad to add other publications you can recommend.Fr John Rowe Worker-priest

Priests and workers: a rejoinder
The first is not a seminal text in the history of this kind of ministry but the one I most value, not least because it was written by my friend, John Rowe. It was published in 1965 and arose from his experience and vocation. He followed the traditional route of training and initial curacies, then left the employment of the church in order to become a priest-worker in Truman's Brewery, Brick Lane, London. He worked there until retirement, and continues to live in East London.
