St. Patrick's Episcopal Church, Kenwood, is fortunate to offer a day of anti-racism training Saturday, March 11, from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
The trainers and program come from our diocesan Commission for Intercultural Ministry, headed by the personable Rev. Lewis Sitting Panther Powell (Deacon), Indigenous Ministries Missioner, Diocese of Northern California.
There will be small group discussions, videos, Bible study, prayer, and sharing to help us better understand key concepts and wrestle with issues of power and privilege, culture, structural and institutional racism, and where God calls us to be brothers and sisters in this multicultural church and culture. Lunch will be provided.
Registration is limited. To register, phone the church office 707-833-4228 by Monday, Feb. 27. Registration fee of $20 is to be paid by check to St. Patrick's Episcopal Church.
Per action taken at the 2009 General Convention (Resolution A142), all Episcopal clergy and lay leaders are expected to receive and periodically renew such training.
For more information, contact Miriam Casey (707-833-2129) or Deacon Marcia Tyriver (707-537-9355).
