Become a More Effective and "Prayerful Speaker"  

On Saturday, April 12, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology will host “Prayerfully Speaking,” a workshop providing practical tools and effective communication skills for leading, developing and presenting events such as lectures, prayer services, retreats and group discussions. Sponsored by the Institute for Christian Spirituality’s Parish Partnership Program, this unique workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Lewis Hall. The registration fee is $25 and includes a light breakfast and lunch. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Please R.S.V.P. to Deborah Kurus at (973) 313-6329 or at by March 28.

The event will feature Mike St. Pierre, dean of students at Oratory Prep in Summit, New Jersey, as well as author Allan Wright and communication professor James McGlone.

In addition to his position at Oratory Prep, St. Pierre hosts the wildly popular blog “The Daily Saint,” which focuses on developing effective ways of getting things done -- with a spiritual twist. He has also written articles for several publications including Momentum, Today's Parish Minister and Religion Teacher's Journal. Additionally, he writes each week for some of the most successful blogs on the internet and is a proud graduate of Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology.
