I assume the Disaster Spiritual Care Training that was scheduled for June 22-23 is not happening online??
Hi Mary Nell. Thanks for asking. With COVID and recent staff transitions, there are no plans to offer the DR Spiritual Care training related to the General Assembly this year. Hopefully, we can reboot these trainings once the COVID threat is past and a new Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care Coordinator is in place.
