Healing Communities Training for Clergy and Congregations (Lancaster)

RESTORATION AND HEALING FOR PEOPLE IMPACTED BY CRIME AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM

May 8, 2015 (Friday, 8:30am–4:00pm) – Ebenezer Baptist Church, Lancaster, PA
June 6, 2015 (Saturday, 8:30am–4:00pm) – Community Mennonite Church, Lancaster, PA

With 1 in 104 American adults currently incarcerated and 1 in 28 Pennsylvanians under criminal justice system control, the odds are EVERY congregation has members impacted by crime and the criminal justice system, whether as crime victims, offenders or families.

Shame and stigma prevent people from talking about the resulting hurts and harms, or seeking help.
How can congregations create a culture of safety and support for those who need it?
Healing Communities training offers answers.

Healing Communities is a national model developed by the Annie E. Casey Foundation with faith leaders from across the theological spectrum to engage congregations in the restoration and healing of their own members who have been impacted by crime and the criminal justice system.
