Haitian Creole Boot Camp @ Diocesan Pastoral Center
Aug 24 – Aug 25 all-day

Believing that language is important to building relationships with our friends and counterparts in Haiti, the Diocesan Haiti Commission is excited to offer this valuable opportunity to anyone wanting to learn Haitian Creole! Join us for a 2-day Haitian Creole Boot Camp August 24 and 25, 2018. Lead by Creole native speaker Gloria Guignard Board, Haitian Creole Boot Camp is an intensive class that will give you a huge jumpstart in learning how to speak and understand Creole!

Does your church community “twin” with a community in Haiti? Do you speak Creole? If not, (or if your Creole is rusty), join us on Friday evening from 6:30-9 and Saturday from 10-3 (lunch provided) on August 24/25 for a Creole Bootcamp lead by Gloria Board. The camp will take place at the Diocesan Pastoral Center ( 7800 Carousel Lane, RVA 23294).
Cost:

  • $125 per person ages 16+
  • $100 for people who already have video + book program & or are coming with someone

Emmaus Ministry Retreat @ Saint Edward the Confessor, Richmond
Aug 25 all-day

Of all the pains that life can hand us, arguable the most searing is the death of a child. A parent’s world irrevocably and horrifically changes forever. As Jesus joined his distraught disciples on the road to Emmaus after his crucifixion, we ask him to join us as we struggle through this horrendous journey of grief daily.

To meet the spiritual needs of Catholic parents whose children of any age have died by any cause – no matter how long ago – the Diocese of Richmond now offers the Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents. A unique, faith-based program providing spiritual retreats for grieving parents offered by grieving parents, Emmaus Ministry offers a safe place where you can find peace, comfort, and hope.

Join us in a warm and loving environment with others who know something of your pain.
