Preaching: A right and responsibility of all baptised
30min | Presented by Dr Maeve Heaney VDMF
This presentation delves into our baptismal calling to share in Jesus’ prophetic ministry to the world. Preaching is an area of our wonderful Catholic faith-life that has often been neglected or assigned exclusively to those with specific roles of leadership of the ecclesial community. And yet, it is a responsibility born of our identity as Christians who have known what it is to be loved in Christ!
