Seminarians at The Saint Paul Seminary now have the opportunity to learn how to thrive as public figures from a pair of experts in the field.

Matt Birk, Super Bowl champion and author, and Paul Vitale, professional speaker and author, recently met with a group of seminarians to preview their course next fall on engaging an audience — especially parishioners in the pews. The goal is to help future priests grow in public speaking confidence and provide more engaging homilies.

The course will also focus on life as a public figure, which definitely fits the job description of a parish priest.

Birk and Vitale are the brains behind Matt Birk and Company, which coaches professionals on public speaking and offers a variety of other professional services. Since his playing career ended, Birk has been a staunch supporter of the Catholic Church and the seminary.
