About 200 priests from the Archdiocese of New Orleans last week attended a three-day convocation to discuss the art of effective preaching, according to the Clarion Herald. The discussions at the gathering, held Sept. 23-25, were led by two priests from the Dominican Order, known as the Order of the Preachers.
The Rev. Gregory Heille, author of an upcoming book on the preaching of Pope Francis and a professor of homiletics at the Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, and The Rev. David Caron, director of the archdiocesan Office of Evangelization, discussed the underpinnings of the homily and provided tips to priests on how they could prepare to preach effectively during weekend Masses, according to the Clarion Herald, the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of New Orleans.
