The Marten Program

About the Program   Conferences   Marten Lectures in Preaching   Publications   Preaching Academy

To that end, the Marten Program serves in two ways: within the University of Notre and as an outreach of the university to the broader Church. In service to 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 sponsor the biennial preaching conferences as well as the Notre Dame Preaching Academy for the continuing formation of clergy in active ministry.Welcome to the John S. Marten Program in Homiletics and Liturgics, housed within the Department of Theology at the University of Notre Dame.  Begun in 1983, the mission of the Marten Program is to support and enhance Roman Catholic preaching within liturgical celebration.

May the Word of God enlighten and nourish us all!
