Course Introduction

Course Introduction

Proclaiming the Gospel and presenting a compelling, informative, and inspiring homily is truly a gift to the parish. Pastors and deacons are often looking for inspiration—and usually a silent moment to prepare—but the busyness of parish life can sometimes pose a challenge to our preachers as they fly into Sunday at a rapid pace.

Let Fr. Mike help you navigate these challenges and grow in confidence in delivering effective homilies that bring the faithful closer to Christ
