A Summer of Teaching and Preaching in Kentucky

Adoration during Ignite Your Torch Youth Conference

Earlier I told you about opportunities with Bro. Reginald Lynch OP who is traveling throughout our province to offer talks to our 3rd Order Dominicans (Dominican Laity) in DC, PA, OH, MA, ME & NY.

Here is another opportunity from our brothers in Kentucky at St. Louis Bertrand Parish and Priory.


"Ignite Your Torch" Youth Conference with have our three student brothers who are assigned to Kentucky this summer. Bro. Michael O'Connor OP (Deacon) will be talking about sacred music, Bro. Cassian Derbes OP will be talking about angels and demons, and Bro. John Baptist Hoang OP will give a pro-life talk. I am hoping to get down to this conference while I am at St. Gertrude in Cincinnati.

Also, St. Louis Bertrand parish, every Monday evening at 7PM (except on July 4th), will offer talks as part of a series called "Back to Basics" (B2B). This year, they are discussing the documents of the Second Vatican Council. Here is a schedule:
