Joseph Nassal, CPPS   You shall be called the repairer of the breach,     the restorer of streets to live in.                         — Isaiah 58: 12 Times of crisis often bring people together in a spirit of compassion and understanding that “we are all in this together.” Regrettably, today’s political climate and the pandemic have increased polarization in society and those divisions have seeped into the church. As your parish family comes back together after physical separation caused by covid for more than a year, you may find "emotional" separation caused by different beliefs. As parish leaders, we need skills to repair the breach. This one-day retreat will teach you some of those skills. ·       How do we address the issues that divide us without distancing or dismissing those with whom we disagree? ·       How do we live the call of the prophet Isaiah to be “repairers of the breach”?… Cost: Free.
