National College "Preaching in Action" Conference

May 23 - May 28, 2023

It's about getting together to discover how each of us is called to preach the Good News in our own unique way!

The National College “Preaching in Action” Conference is a collaborative response to our desire as Dominicans (a.k.a. the Order of Preachers) to introduce college aged students like yourself to the foundations and characteristics of Dominican Spirituality!

So, what happens at the “Preaching in Action” Conference?

You’ll form a vibrant, prayerful and justice minded community of young adults from around the country who are ignited to become Preachers using the “pulpit of their lives.”

By hearing the Word of God

you will learn how it is vital to the life of all Dominicans and come to know ways you can make that Word come alive in your daily life and the lives of those you meet.

Through your interests

an array of dynamic presenters will help you explore ways you can be a preacher using the mediums of art, dance, drama and so much more!

In prayer and the liturgy

using musical talents, gifted voices and individual creativity, you will participate in prayer services that are a vital part of the conference. This powerful experience can be brought back to your places of worship, campuses or spiritual gatherings.

Moving forward boldly

with the Holy Spirit at your side – you’ll be challenged to preach the “Good News” to others with all the tools you’ve learned at the conference!

The 2023 National College "Preaching in Action" Conference will take place from May 23–28, 2023 at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, MI.

Preaching in Action Plans

At the end of the conference, students are challenged with the creation of an action plan for the upcoming school year.

With the Dominican Charism firmly planted in mind, body, and spirit – the “Holy Preaching” continues!
