Patricia Bruno & Jude Siciliano
Father Jude Siciliano, O.P. and Sister Patricia Bruno, O.P. have been friends of mine for over twenty-five years.
Father Jude’s effective preaching was clearly evident at Saint Monica’s parish (Moraga, CA) where I met him several years ago. Later, he and Sister Patricia taught homiletics at the Graduate Theological Union. They call themselves the Dominican Preaching Team and have worked around the country in preaching parish retreats and giving scripture workshops.
I’m naturally delighted that we can provide an example of a collaborative team that goes back to the historical roots of the Order of Preachers and the holy memory of Saint Dominic.
In San Francisco, we meet Sister Patricia at Saint Dominic’s Church, then travel to the Church of Saint James in Petaluma, CA where both she and Jude are holding a parish retreat.
We listen to these gifted witnesses to the gospel and hear how they pass on the preaching circle of Dominican spirituality and social justice.
