On Ash Wednesday, Fr. Gregory Heille, O.P. (Dean of the Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis and president of the Academy of Homiletics in the U.S.), Dr. Manfred Entrich O.P. (Director of the Institute for Pastoral Homiletics in Germany) and Irmgard Franke-Rademacher (Assistant to the IPH) visited the headquarters of Bonifatiuswerk in Paderhorn, Germany. There they met with Bonifatiuswerk Director Monsignor Georg Austen to learn about the ministry of Bonifatiuswerk in the diaspora regions of Germany, Northern Europe, and the Baltic States—with special interest in implications for the New Evangelization. Aquinas Institute of Theology and the Institute for Pastoral Homiletics are Dominican partners firm in their interest in promoting preaching and the New Evangelization in both the United States and Germany.
