The Family Justice Center of Manhattan, regional chaplains of CPSP and invited chaplains, and associated personnel from local pastoral care organizations in the city, will gather to participate in a Domestic Violence Training from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, Oct. 17. This three hour interactive training is hosted by The Mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence in NYC and The L.O.V.E. Task Force on Non-Violent Living.... (i.e. "Liberate Ourselves, Value Everyone.") The last hour will be spent sharing experiences, faith and fellowship over a shared potluck lunch, hosted by members of the Ellis Island CPSP Chapter. It is hoped this will spark interest for chapters in all regions if not meeting already to consider hosting future gatherings for CPSP and beyond with both personal and professional opportunities of interest to learn, share, develop and appreciate one another's pastoral work and soul journeys.
Another invitation is on offer for our CPSP regional chaplains: On Wednesday, October 21, 2015, 7 P.M., L.O.V.E. Task Force on Non-Violent Living will be presenting a keynote presentation and panel discussion: "Every Life is Sacred: Ending Gun Violence - It's Possible!" Ms. Leah Barrett, Executive Director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, keynote speaker, will be joined with community leaders representing faith traditions, law enforcement, and governmental representatives. Panelists include the Honorable Rebecca A. Seawright, Assembly Member, for our New York State District; The Rev. Dr. T. Kenjitsu Nakagaki, Ordained Buddhist Priest and President of the Buddhist Council of New York; The Rev. Karyn Carlo, PhD., American Baptist Pastor and retired New York City Police Captain; with the Rev. Dr. Victoria Jeanne Rollins, BCCC, BCPC, CFHPC, Moderator. Refreshments will be served following a discussion opened up to our guests with the presenters.
