In June 2013, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Clergy, Consecrated Life & Vocations held a conference for teachers of homiletics entitled "Preaching the Mystery of Faith" at  the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN.

The  objectives of the confererence were:

  • To implement the bishops’ latest document on preaching Preaching the Mystery of Faith: the Sunday Homily in seminaries, deacon formation programs, and the ongoing formation of clergy.

  • To provide professional development for teachers of homiletics through presentations by leading scholars and preachers.

  • To improve techniques for teaching homiletics.

We are pleased to share some of the presentations from the conference here on our Homiletics website.
