When: Two Saturday Workshops: April 23 & 30, 2022 | 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The purpose of this workshop is to assist the diocese in organizing to eliminate the sin of racism. There are three essential steps to be followed when a diocese makes this commitment to focus on the sin of racism, its elimination from the church, the community, and the world in which we live. First, there needs to be an organized and functioning anti-racism committee; secondly, the support of the diocesan bishop; and thirdly, a comprehensive plan for proceeding with this ministry.
This training fulfills the intent of several General Convention resolutions, which call for leaders at all levels of The Episcopal Church to receive training on the Church’s teaching about racial diversity as well as other forms of diversity present within the human family.
Registration Closed April 19, 2022
To ensure maximum engagement, registration is limited to a total of 30 people. If you are interested in attending after the registration limit has been reached, please email Shirley Bolden at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the waitlist.
