MANILA, April 26, 2013—The Dominican Province of the Philippines will be holding a three-day conference on the conventional and new preaching methods geared to respond to the Church’s call for new evangelization.
Called “Praedicare,” the three-day conference is slated from April 30 to May 2 at the Institute of Preaching, in Sto. Domingo Compound, Quezon City.
The summit will be highlighted with the conferment of the Domingo de Salazar Preaching Award to Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle who will preside over the event’s opening Mass.
The Domingo de Salazar Preaching Award is given in honor of the first bishop of Manila in 1579 to an outstanding non-Dominican preacher. Tagle will be the first recipient of the award.
Speakers for the three-day confab are Fr. Stephen Cuyos, MSC, a Hall-of-Famer in the Catholic Mass Media Awards for best website; inspirational speaker and bestselling author Michael Angelo Lobrin; Sr. Mary Epifania Brasil, OP, superior of the Dominican Sisters of Regina Rosarii; youth pastor Ryan Tan; and distinguished Filipino preacher Fr. Enrico Gonzales, OP.
