Regional Training Workshops

Six training workshops were held across the diocese in late September 2018. Those individuals who have been identified as the Emergency Planning Lead at their parish/school, along with any other team members or parish staff, were encouraged to attend one of these workshops. During the training workshop, Jane Colacecchi worked with attendees to begin creating plans specific to their parish/school. Jane hosted an additional webinar on October 15th for those who were unable to attend one of the training workshops.
