CRS Capacity Building Initiative – Parish Ambassador Training
October 29, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
We are pleased to inform you that the Diocese of San Jose has been selected to become a Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Diocesan Capacity Building Initiative participant for the coming year. The purpose of this initiative is to strengthen and focus the partnership between CRS and the Office of Social Ministries, through the participation of parishes and schools. Through this initiative, we hope to make global solidarity, in the context of broader parish-based social ministry, deeper, widely available and more vibrant for all Catholics in the Diocese of San Jose.
To get started, we are inviting dedicated leaders to serve as Parish Ambassadors to represent your parish and participate in this initiative. Particularly, they will be serving in a special leadership role, and will have the unique opportunity to receive leadership training from CRS representatives, focusing on global solidarity through such efforts as the CRS Rice Bowl experience, fair trade initiatives, and legislative advocacy. Our first training will be led by Chris West, Director of Partnership, Training & Engagement, from CRS Headquarters and will take place on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at the Chancery.
Our hope is that you would assist the Global Solidarity Team in identifying these leaders from your parish who would be interested in participating in this initiative and who would be open to serving as Parish Ambassadors.
Thank you for your support and continued commitment to global solidarity. Please contact Crystal Catalan at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
