Description

Restorative Justice Circles Intensive with Fr. David Kelly, C.PP.S.

Catholic Mobilizing Network is pleased to welcome Fr. David Kelly, C.PP.S., founder and Executive Director of Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation to share his skill and experience in restorative justice ministry. Peacemaking circles are a foundational restorative practice that can be used to bring about healing for people and relationships impacted by crime. In addition to addressing instances of harm, circles can be useful tools for storytelling, reflection, and community building.

The Intensive will be held over the period of two days. The first part begins on Thursday, January 31st from 5:30 - 8:30 PM. The second part will take place on Friday, February 1st from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.

In this intensive workshop, participants will gain an in-depth understanding of restorative justice principles and practices. Through Fr. David Kelly’s experienced facilitation and spirit-filled reflection, participants will:

  • Learn about a variety of applications for circles in ministry and civic life
  • Hear stories and examples of restorative practices as they are used in a Catholic context​
  • Experience the transformative power of participating in peacemaking circles
  • Discern and share opportunities to utilize restorative circles in their dioceses, parishes, and communities

CMN is hosting this event in conjunction with the annual Catholic Social Ministry Gathering taking place from February 2-5, 2019 in Washington, DC. The theme this year is Let Justice Flow (cf. Amos 5:24): A Call to Restore and Reconcile.

This workshop is open to all and is ideal for Catholic leaders who wish to build a deeper understanding of restorative justice practices in their dioceses, networks, ministries, and communities.
