ARCHDIOCESAN CJPD MEMBERS RECEIVE TRAINING ON CONFLICT RESOLUTION AND RECONCILIATION PROCESS
The Archdiocesan Catholic Justice and Peace Department (C.J.P.D) conducted a two-day workshop on transformation and the manifest of violence, held at the Clergy home in Ruaraka.
C.J.P.D partnered with Shalom Center for Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation – SCCRR, a non-governmental office that empowers people on ways of resolving conflicts. The training aimed to educate C.J.P.D officers across the archdiocese on the importance of upholding and maintaining peace in society.
Rev. Fr. Patrick Ndung’u, the C.J.P.D director, speaking after the training explained the importance of conducting the training in all the parishes in the Archdiocese. He stated that the end result would be for them to cascade down the information to other parishioners and above all to be agents of peace.
The training was attended by over 50 C.J.P.D representatives and deanery chaplains from across the archdiocese. SCCRR works to end the Cycle of Inter-Ethnic and Inter-Religious violence, in the tribal lands of Eastern Africa and informal urban settlements. They aim to empower local communities to be the architects of their own interdependent future of reconciled coexistence.
