Pennsylvania Cabinet Member to Speak at Board Meeting

OCPM’s annual board meeting begins this evening, August 22, in Philadelphia with a reception featuring John E. Wetzel, Secretary of the Department of Corrections for the State of Pennsylvania. Secretary Wetzel is responsible for the management and operations of the department, which houses over 51,000 inmates, has approximately 15,000 employees, and a nearly $2 billion budget.

Secretary Wetzel will also join OCPM in providing a training to Philadelphia-area Orthodox clergy. The training, which has been funded by a grant from The Leadership 100 Endowment Fund, covers essential topics for clergy including what to do when a parishioner is arrested, how families and loved ones are affected when someone is arrested or goes to prison, and how parishes can reach out to parishioners who’ve been released from prison.
