The Pennsylvania Prison Chaplains Association is pleased to announce our 2014 annual conference.
This year, the conference will take place September 2, 3, 4 2014, in Carlisle, PA, at the Bongiorno Conference Center.
The conference will focus on the challenges that chaplains face with the interface of security and spirituality. It will also feature a special presentation on the lessons the PA Department of Corrections has learned 25 years after the 1989 Camp Hill riot as well as a number of relevant and practical workshops.
Prior to the conference, you may contact either the Dauphin County Prison (Harrisburg, PA) or SCI-Camp Hill (Camp Hill, PA) for a tour of their facilities. Information is included about these tours on the attached brochures.
As was the case last year, the conference will feature a PPCA Banquet featuring life music, special dinner entrees, speakers, and the awarding of the PPCA Prison Chaplain of the Year award. Retirees will be invited to attend the banquet which will take place Wednesday, September 3, 2014.
For specific questions about the conference, contact Rev. Frank Lewis, President of the PPCA and FCPD at SCI Fayette as noted on the conference brochure.
