"Making a Difference," a workshop for clergy and those involved in full-time ministry, will be held Sept. 24-26 at the Bishop Robert E. Tracy Center, 1800 S. Acadian Thruway.

The workshop includes lectures, group discussion, small group work and daily periods of teaching and practicing Centering Prayer. Courses are open to women and men of all faiths who minister to others.

The courses are conducted by a team of leaders, both lay and ordained persons, who are extensively trained in the course technology, according to a news release. No theology is presented or discussed by the course leaders, although participants are encouraged to discover where the ideas presented can enrich and empower their own theology and faith.
