18th Annual Preaching in Action Conference
The 18th Annual Preaching in Action Conference will be held from May 19 – May 24, 2020, at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Students from Dominican colleges/universities or college campuses with a Dominican presence, throughout the United States, are invited to participate in the conference.
Each May students are immersed in the Dominican tradition of preaching. Through presentation, dynamic workshops, peer-to-peer sharing, etc. they learn that they too are preachers in their own unique ways.
At the end of the conference, students are challenged with the creation of an action plan for the upcoming school year. This plan is the vehicle for sharing what they have learned at the conference to their college campuses. With the Dominican Charism firmly planted in mind, body, and spirit – the “Holy Preaching” continues!
