The Archdiocese of San Francisco asks all parish and school clergy and Safety Coordinators to take advantage of the upcoming workshop “Security in Houses of Worship and Faith-Based Organizations.”

Sponsored by the San Francisco Interfaith Council, it focuses primarily on Active Shooter actions, proper procedures surrounding preparedness, and how to provide both spiritual and psychological recovery. There will be representation from federal, state, and local first responding agencies, and other high-profile collaborating partners.

The Archdiocesan Office of Safety & Security urges parish and school representatives to register online here, and to bring to the workshop your concerns and ideas. If you have questions, please contact Derek Gaskin, above. Contact information for the San Francisco Interfaith Council is here: Cynthia Zamboukos, 415-474-1321,
