The universality of our Catholic faith is best measured by our relationship with the larger community, from our neighbor next door to the organizations and civic institutions that serve and govern society. How can religious organizations, communities, and government work together for change?

This workshop will explore a comprehensive and collaborative approach to successful community reentry in the Diocese of Orange. Presenters will share how restorative justice practices, done in collaborative partnership between agencies and organizations (government, non-profit, and faith-based), have proven highly successful in reducing recidivism and providing hope.
