“The preaching workshop was a very good experience to be with a group of brother priests who take preaching seriously and wish to grow in their ability to prepare and deliver a homily that will touch people’s hearts and hopefully change their lives. The concept of ‘encounter’ is fundamental and we certainly were given the opportunity to learn and practice the skills to do this.”
