Preaching Resurrection Hope
April 15 • A Workshop on Preaching by Mary Catherine Hilkert, O.P.
St. Charles Room of the Danna Student Center | campus map
Join Mary Catherine Hilkert, a member of the Dominican Sisters of Peace and a Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame as she presents a workshop on preaching. Rooted in the conviction that the Word of God is creative and prophetic and that the Spirit of God empowers resurrection hope, this workshop is designed for ordained and lay preachers, leaders of community worship and prayer, and all those called to share the Word of God. Focusing on the lectionary readings for Sunday, April 16, the morning will include theological reflection on preaching as the art of “naming grace” and a creative process that will engage participants in "breaking open the Word" and developing skills for leading others in that process.
8-9 a.m. Refreshments
9 a.m.-12 p.m.: Prayer, lecture, and conversation
The workshop is complemented by a lecture on preaching she will offer on Friday evening. You do not need to attend the lecture in order to attend the workshop.
This event is supported by the Fr. Ignatius Roppolo Memorial Endowment.
