short films, audio-visual documentaries, music videos, and other creative modes
“Preach the WORD. Be in season or out of season…” (2 Timothy 4:2a) The grace and task of preaching, entrusted eminently to the Dominican Family, is perennially relevant and rich in possibilities, even and especially in the context of this global COVID19 pandemic.
The Dominican Preaching Network, a community of schools of preaching – the Aquinas Institute of Theology (USA), the Institut für PastoralHomiletik (Germany), and the Institute of Preaching (Philippines), graciously hosts this international Colloquium on Dominican Preaching, with the theme “Urbi et Orbi: Dominican Preaching to the City and to the World in the Time of Pandemic” this 12-14 October 2021, to be conducted virtually across several international time zones.
Integral to the colloquium is the sharing of experiences about “Dominican Preaching in the time of Pandemic”. We hope to develop audio-visual materials, to document the courageous moments of Dominican sisters and brothers engaged in the mission of Preaching “the Word, in season and out of season.”
- Dominican friars, nuns, active sisters, members of the laity, of the priestly fraternities, of the Dominican Youth Movement, associates who engage in preaching, even and especially in the time of pandemic
