Homilies

Liturgy of the Word photos20 crop

The Homilies in this section were given between 2002 and May 2019 at St. Noel Church in Willoughby Hills, Ohio. Beginning in June 2019, they were offered at Holy Angels Church in Bainbridge, Ohio. As all liturgical preaching, they are tied to specific events in the world and in the life of the community. Despite their contingency to a particular setting, they are offered here as a stimulus to homilists and to all who seek to reflect upon God’s Word.

I would like to thank members of St. Noel who transcribed these homilies on a weekly basis, thus allowing them to be reproduced here.

The homilies are searchable according to the three year cycle of the Lectionary.
