Diocesan Parenting Workshop Series

JOHNSTOWN, PA -- [Diocesan Chancery] Our Diocese is pleased to announce its next Parenting Workshops in its Series of  Workshops entitled “Raising Believing Children”.  The next Workshop will be hosted by our church of St. Michael’s in Niles, IL on Saturday, September 7th and the third Workshop will be hosted by our church of St. John’s on Mill Hill Avenue in Bridgeport, CT on Saturday, September 21st.  The fourth in the Series will be hosted by our Holy Ghost Church in Phoenixville, PA on Saturday, October 19th.  The Workshops are designed to help parents learn more about the “craft” of parenting and help them raise their children in the Faith.  The Workshops focus on the ways parents can help their children stay faithful to Christ and His Church in a world that is filled with doubt and most often works against their Faith.  The Workshops are for parents of any age – you’re never too old to be a son or daughter, and likewise you’re never too old to be a parent!  In addition, each Workshop has a kids component to it which includes its own curriculum and set of activities.  This year’s kids curriculum focuses on the Sacrament of Communion.  Each child will have the opportunity to make their own Prosphora, bring home a Prosphora Stamp and Recipe, and develop a new skill to help their parish.  If you have not registered for one of the Workshops, please see the links below in order to register. 

The Series of Parenting Workshops are hosted by different churches and deaneries around our Diocese.  The first Workshop in the Series was hosted by Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Rockaway, NJ on March 2, 2019.  The first round of Workshops in the series will feature His Eminence Metropolitan Gregory of Nyssa and Very Rev. Stephen Loposky as presenters and workshop facilitators.  Each workshop will include both presentations and small group moderated discussions to allow participants to help each other in their lives as parents.  This is an exciting and important endeavor.  His Eminence Metropolitan Gregory invites you to join him in support of parents as our Diocese launches this initiative to help them in their parental vocation.
