Catechetical Conferences

From 1994 to 2001, Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio devoted his full attention to serving religious educators and administrators seeking a Masters Degree in Theology from the University of Dallas.


Since 2001, he has continued to serve Catholic catechetical leaders by offering keynotes and workshops for a variety of catechetical conferences and in-service events for Catholic School teachers.  His speaking has both encouraged educators in their own spiritual life and ongoing development and provided them images, stories and new ways of explaining the sacraments, morality, and faith that can be directly shared with students whether they be children, teens, or adults.  Some of the most popular talks to educators have been:


The Sacraments: God’s Body Language

Confirmation: Sacrament of Mission

Who Needs Confession?

Discipleship as the Greatest Adventure

I Believe: the Heart of Catholic Faith


For a full description of these talks and a full list of Dr. Italy’s topics, see his Topics Page.
