Event description

Description

One of the Archdiocese pastoral priorities is "works of mercy". Join Archbishop Sample for the Archdiocese of Portland Prison Ministry Conference where those who minister to prisoners throughout our state will network and learn how to better serve those who are imprisoned.

The conference will consist of presentations on topics about this important work of mercy: for example restorative justice, ministering to death row inmates and overcoming challenges faced by chaplains and volunteers in institutions.

In addition to hearing from our distinguished presenters, we hope you are ready to share experiences and best practices with other Catholics working in prison outreach across our Archdiocese. The format of this conference creates opportunities for you to do just that—share and learn from each other. There are also opportunities so you can share your best practices and thoughts at any time. Breaks and Open Forum time will allow you the opportunity to make those important connections.

There is a $25 registration fee which includes conference materials and lunch.

Important Information: This year we will be in the Mt. Angel Abbey Library.
