Event description

Description

We invite you to register to attend the third annual Victorian Prison Chaplaincy Conference, being held on Wednesday 28 June 2017 at the Darebin Arts & Entertainment Centre in Preston, Vic.

Holding the Stories picture
The theme is “Holding the Stories".
As prison chaplains, we are the holders of the stories of the residents and staff we minister to. We hold these stories with grace, compassion and dignity, looking for the places where we can sow seeds of hope.

The Conference will begin at 9:00am. The day session goes to 5:00pm, followed by the Conference Dinner at 6:00pm, featuring our Dinner Speaker, Rod Wise (Deputy Commissioner Operations - Corrections Victoria).

The conference will also feature presentations from:

  • the The Hon. Gayle Tierney MLC, Minister for Corrections

  • Jan Shuard, Commissioner, Corrections Victoria

  • "those who know", on Experiences of Incarceration

  • your peers, on Experiences of Prison Chaplaincy

  • Trauma psychologist Dr Rob Gordon

This is a unique opportunity to unite, learn, be supported, be encouraged & better equipped for your work, in a network gathering of fellow Prison Chaplains from throughout Victoria.

Registration is just $50.00 for the full conference, or $35.00 for either the Day Session only or the Dinner & Dinner Speaker. Partners and friends, as well as colleagues who are unable to attend the day session, are very welcome to attend the Dinner!
