Welcome to the John S. Marten Program in Homiletics and Liturgics!


Our mission is to support and strengthen Roman Catholic preaching. How do we do that?
  • Within the theology department at Notre Dame, we provide preaching courses and lectures for seminarians and lay students within the Master of Divinity Program.
  • In service to the broader Church:
    • We  offer a preaching conference every other summer.
    • We also work with dioceses for the formation of preachers through our Notre Dame Preaching Academy program.
Come join us for our conferences and check out our programs!
