This past weekend eleven students from St. Agnes Academic High School, College Point, NY, and St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School, West Islip participated in a weekend of prayer, study, and the forming of community. These students were the latest group to participate in the Dominican Youth Preaching Workshops, a program of the Dominican Youth Movement USA in partnership with the Sisters of Saint Dominic of Amityville.

Through these workshops, the students are introduced to the Dominican tradition of preaching and learn how to bring their baptismal call to preach the “Good News” through the gifts they have been given by God.
