Programs & Activities

The interrelated programs of the Catholic Preaching Institute provide formation for archdiocesan clergy (priests and permanent deacons) in parish ministry.  

CPI’s programs engage clergy, seminary faculty, and laity in the development of new ideas and best practices instrumental to compelling preaching in the Roman Catholic tradition.

With a multi-faceted focus on the Word of God, CPI aims to improve preaching, thereby elevating the faithful’s appreciation of meaningful homilies.  In this way, preaching will enhance the liturgical life of parishes and make a positive impact on local communities.
