CCC and SCU Pilots Restorative Justice Pilot Free Webinar-Based Certificate Program

Bible and Rosary

The California Catholic Conference, Office of Restorative Justice and Santa Clara University, Pastoral Ministries Graduate Program with a concentration on Restorative Justice and Chaplaincy, and the (Arch)Diocesan Restorative Justice Directors of California have partnered to offer a free web-based restorative justice chaplaincy program. The January pilot program is aimed at providing training for the spiritual care for the incarcerated and their families, as well as care of victims of crime and their families.

The program is open to anyone exploring a calling with the chaplaincy program and includes advent resources with weekly prayer and video reflections, and will include virtual retreats and Masses, and webinars. Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of the program.

Just as California has led the U.S. in correctional justice reform, so has the California Catholic Conference led the country in developing a unified, Catholic restorative justice movement — most recently with the successful opposition to Proposition 20.

For the past 20 years, the California Catholic Conference has partnered with the CCHD, Catholic donors and founders of Santa Clara University to build a statewide Catholic Restorative Justice movement in California.
