Awake Milwaukee [Milwaukee WI]
September 10, 2022
By Catherine Owers
Awake Milwaukee invites you to participate in Courageous Conversations, our online speaker/discussion series created to build community, deepen understanding, encourage conversation, and inspire action in response to the complex issue of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. You are invited to join us for:
WHAT I WANT CATHOLICS TO UNDERSTAND: A CONVERSATION WITH ABUSE SURVIVORS
PART 1, LISTEN AND LEARN: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 7:00PM – 8:30PM CDT
PART 2, DISCUSS AND DISCERN: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 7:00PM – 8:30PM CDT
Our wonderful panel of victim-survivors—Gigi Fontanilla, Deacon Larry Normann, Kathy Ann Coll, Shaun Dougherty, and Esther Harber—will share their stories and perspectives with the Awake community.
Part 1 (Listen and Learn) will include a short introduction from Awake, engaging conversation with our panelists, and question and answer time at the end of the evening. (This event will be recorded for later viewing.)
Part 2 (Discuss and Discern) will be focused on building connections and community while diving deeper into the questions raised by the conversation the previous week. We will utilize Zoom breakout rooms for facilitated small group discussion and sharing, encouraging all participants to bring their own perspectives and experiences to the conversation. (This event will not be recorded–you’ll need to attend live to hear these insights!)
Please register below to attend on September 22! You will receive an email the day before the event with more information, as well as the Zoom link for participation. (If you cannot attend on the 22nd, you can also register to receive a recording of the event via email.) The follow up email from Part 1 will share information and an RSVP link for the Part 2 discussion.
