Dominican Preaching Team

Meet the Dominican Preaching Team
New Dominican Preaching Team members
During the summer, Edgewood seniors Delaney Bondoc, Will Hebl, Ellie Heinrichs, and Aariika Maaneb de Macedo joined 77 other students, teachers, and Dominican sisters and friars from 19 Dominican high schools and communities nationwide at the 20th Annual Dominican High Schools Preaching Conference at Siena Heights University in Adrian, MI. 

Each year, EHS sends up to four students to the conference. As the Order of Preachers (O.P.), Dominicans are called to preach the Gospel through the many dimensions of human experience while being rooted in study, prayer, community, and service. This summer’s six-day conference was centered around the themes of Dominican tradition, preaching, justice, and the arts. The students actively explored these themes through prayer services and liturgies, small and large group discussions, and various service and recreational activities.
At the end of the conference, Aariika, Delaney, Will, and Ellie were commissioned as a “Preaching Team.” Through their collective effort this year, they will serve and assist fellow Peer Ministry students by sharing what they have learned about the preaching mission of the Dominicans. The Preaching Team will assist in incorporating our Dominican heritage into Edgewood’s liturgies as well as to help Campus Ministry during other special celebrations and activities.
