Profound Preaching 2014: Paradigms for Preachers
A Workshop for Priests and Deacons with Fr. Allan White, op


“On the road to Emmaus Jesus provides a model of how preachers should approach their ministry. Discipleship and proclamation go together. Preachers must listen to the Word, be transformed by the Word and live the Word so that those who cannot read it can read it in and through them.”

-Fr. Allan White, op
