The Marten Program sponsors preaching conferences in the summers, inviting leaders in the field of homiletics to share their insights with preachers in the field. These are extended moments for busy preachers to come away from their routine to the peace-filled campus at Notre Dame. Revel in the sunset over St. Mary's Lake. Wake up to the calling of birds. Most of all, enjoy the camaraderie of others who are passionate about sharing the Gospel.
