Jan. 12-13, 2024 at Trinity Episcopal Church in St. Charles
The Diocesan Dismantling Racism Commission leads a 14-hour training grounded in Biblical scripture and based on Episcopal Church teaching. The training is open to all persons who would like to deepen their understanding of racism, prejudice, and privilege — and begin to define strategies to confront those issues in our society today.
These workshops are mandatory for clergy, wardens, and other designated leaders of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri but will be valuable for anyone. There is no cost for this training; lunch, beverages, and snacks are included. Registration is required (see below). Child care is available with registration.
Our next training session will be: Friday, Jan. 12 - Saturday, Jan. 13, 2024 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. (both days) Trinity Episcopal Church, St. Charles 318 South Duchesne Drive, St. Charles, MO, 63301
The training is an intense two-day workshop that includes historical and current material, multimedia, small groups, role plays, facilitated dialogue, and spiritual nourishment.
Dismantling racism training was mandated by the 73rd General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 2000 (Resolution B049). Our Diocesan Commission for Dismantling Racism offers workshops on recognizing and eliminating institutional racism in the Church. This is at the front end of Martin Luther King weekend.
This is the REQUIRED workshop for all clergy, persons seeking ordination, youth workers, employees, and wardens. It is suggested training for any lay leadership in the Diocese of Missouri. This two-day workshop will account for 14 hours of canonically required training.
