"The homily has special importance due to its eucharistic context: it surpasses all forms of catechesis as the supreme moment in the dialogue between God and his people which lead up to sacramental communion." - Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, 137
In his recent apostolic exhortation, Pope Francis dedicates time to discuss the issue on homiletics. As a topic that affects many clergy men and parishioners, the Office of Continuing of Priests offers a weekly program for priests and deacons of the Diocese of San Bernardino and the Diocese of San Diego on the preparation of the homily.
English sessions are held 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM, every Tuesday during the program season.
Spanish sessions are held from 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM on Tuesdays during the program season.
Both programs are presented through Webinar, which allows you to participate from your own parishes or any other location with internet access. This will be a live presentation. The presenter will talk for 30 minutes, and participants will have 15 minutes for questions or comments.
