The Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut

Mandatory Clergy Professional Development

In 2019 we will again hear from Dr. David Olsen, Executive Director of Samaritan Counseling Center and author of Saying No to Say Yes. In addition, the Bishops will offer their vantage points on a variety of topics. Canon Robin Hammeal-Urban will also be a presenter. She will offer a report on Title IV in ECCT, updates in safe church practices as well as insights from Sustaining Ministry Foundations and Practices for Serving Faithfully, Sandra Wheeler, Baker Publishing Group 2017. Attendance at a Mandatory Professional Development Day for Clergy is required for all clergy canonically resident or licensed in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut (ECCT). MCPD days will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Clergy may choose one of the following 2019 dates to attend:

April 11, 2019 (Thursday): St. Mark's Church, 111 Oenoke Ridge, New Canaan - Register here

May 14, 2019 (Tuesday): St. Peter's-Trinity Church, 160 Main St., Thomaston - Register here

June 15, 2019 (Saturday): St. John's Church, 523 Hartford Turnpike, Vernon - Register here

If an emergency prevents a cleric from attending the date for which they are registered, they will automatically be registered and expected to attend the final MCPD offering on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at St. John's Church, West Hartford.
