THEME: “The Future-Of Dreams and Visions”
We will eat Sunday evening and have orientation by Fr. John Vogler held at the Hotel.
We will have an auditorium available at the Prison Fellowship Headquarters from 9 to 4. They will provide lunch.
a. We should have time devoted to the National Convocation of Prison Ministry and its future.
b. We Should have time allotted for Position Paper proposals.
c. We have made inquiry with the Religious Action Center [http://rac.org/] to see if they would be able and willing to provide input on advocating at the national level.
d. We may explore how Restorative Justice could have an impact on Corrections officials.
e. We have invited long time members of the Convocation in the DC area to share their insights.
Programming will be 9-4 at the Prison Fellowship Headquarters. After a 15-20 minute presentation on the History and Vision of the Convocation, we will join the “Operation Starting Line” program of the Prison Fellowship for their regularly scheduled meeting. Main objective of this day will be for the Convocation membership to be more aware of the scope and depth of PF Programming.
Prison Fellowship will provide lunch on Tuesday.
Tuesday evening can be open for folks to eat and tour as they please.
Or, folks can leave Tuesday evening to save money if they can arrange it. They will need a flight that leaves after 7 PM to accommodate the shuttles from the Conference Center to the hotel and then from the hotel to Dulles Airport, leaving time to clear security.
There will not be any programming on Wednesday.
