"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 Organization of Directors of Continuing of Priests of the Dioceses of the Episcopal Provinces of Los Angeles and San Francisco offers a weekly program for priests and deacons.

English Program
