Marten Program Preaching Conference Details:

The Marten Program sponsors a preaching conference every other summer, 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. 

Mark your calendar for the 2023 Conference "Visions of the Reign of God: Preaching and Catholic Social Teaching." June 26-28, 2023. Information forthcoming.
