The 2016 Parish Leadership Conferences will focus on ministering to those
with addictions. The Conferences will be led by the team of Mtr. Kathy Alonge-Coons, Vicar,
Waterford, Fr. David Haig, Rector,
St. Luke's on the Hill,
Mechanicville and Mtr. Anne Curtin, Executive Director,
Healing a Woman's Soul.
These leaders all have a tremendous amount of experience working with people from all walks of life who struggle
with various addictions, and will provide tools for helping all those in the parish, not just the clergy,
to minister to those with these various addictions. The Conferences will be held regionally throughout the diocese,
and will also provide local resources for helping those with addictions.
You may attend whichever Conference is most convenient for you. All Conferences begin at 8:30 a.m.
with registration and goodies and continue until 4:00 p.m. There is no charge for the Conferences and
lunch will be provided.
The Conferences will be held as follows:
Hudson Valley, Metropolitan, Southern Adirondack, Upper Hudson
Join us for a day of learning, worship, and fellowship to help support
everyone in the parish in reaching out in love to those who struggle with addiction. To register online for
