Calling All Preachers!

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 07/30/13

The following email arrived this afternoon:

I’m writing with an item that might be of interest for The Deacon’s Bench. The Loyola Institute for Ministry (Loyola New Orleans) is offering an entirely online preaching course, Sharing the Word, this fall from September 9 through November 18, and available for CEU or graduate credit . The class is open to anyone, clergy or lay, who already has some preaching experience and is interested in improving; the course content itself grows out of my doctoral work on ongoing preaching formation for diaconal and lay preachers (I wrote the course and will be teaching it). Enrollment is limited to twelve students per class. In case you’re wondering about me, I’m a lay preacher in the Diocese of Monterey and am on the formation team for our diaconate as well as being their preaching teacher… …At any rate, Tom Ryan–who directs the Loyola Institute for Ministry and who has been an unfailing supporter of good preaching education–and I would greatly welcome any help that you might be willing to offer in getting the word out for the class. For those living a long way from a Catholic college or university, a class like Sharing the Word may be a real gift.  Thanks! Peace to you, Deborah **** Dr. Deborah L. Wilhelm Preaching Instructor, Lay Preacher Loyola Institute for Ministry
