The Department of Pastoral and Theological Studies will host a free workshop developed especially for first responders. Hidden in Plain Sight: Discovering the Spiritual Depth of the First Responder will be held Saturday, September 25,
from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Especially designed for first responders, this workshop will allow the attendees to explore their own depth of spirituality through the lens of who they are and what they do. First responders-firefighters, law enforcers, members of EMT units, and others will take time to explore how what they do and who they are carries on the spirit of Father Mychal Judge. Father Judge was a Roman Catholic priest of the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor, Chaplain of the Fire Department of New York, and the first recorded victim of the September 11, 2001, attacks.
Prior to the workshop, The Making of the Saint of 9/11; the Life and Spirit of Father Mychal Judge, OFM will be held from 9:00a.m.-1:00p.m. The day will begin with a pair of presenters sharing their understanding of the iconic New York priest, who came to be known as the Saint of 9/11, and his heritage as represented in the movie Saint of 9/11. Rev. Francis Gunn, a post 9/11 chaplain for New York Firefighters and longtime trauma specialist, and Brian Carroll, M.Div, LCSW, a close friend of Father Judge featured in the documentary, will give insider highlights and experiences from their memories of Father Judge.
There is no fee for the workshop or the morning presentation, but registration is required. To register or for more information, contact Mary Anne Stewart at 610-558-5572 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
