The Deacon Preacher is the oldest and most respected free homiletics  site designed by Deacons for Deacons.

The Deacon who preaches brings a unique point of view to the pulpit. The challenge is to remain fresh and focused on God's Word as presented in the liturgical texts. The purpose of this site is to aid in the research, preparation and preaching of the homily.

Here you will find articles and commentary on the art of preaching, the Lectionary texts and  resources that are free and can be downloaded. If you find this site useful, please let me know.

Submit a Homily
Homilies are always welcome from Deacons, Priests, Seminarians* and those in Diaconal Formation*, Roman Catholic, Orthodox or Anglican only please.
Please make your submission in either Word format, or preferably as a PDF.
If you would like for me to archive your homilies on your own page, please submit a photo and a short bio.

Submit a homily by email. (bill@deaconbill.com)
