Seminarians completing their field education at SCI Waymart have been elevated from volunteer to intern status this fall! This facility is one of three local institutions where our seminarians are currently ministering as part of their field education.
Those in the above photo from our meeting on November 17th were, from right to left: Joseph Grillo, Interim Corrections Classification and Program Manager, The Rev. Don Schaible, Facility Chaplaincy Program Director, Archpriest Steven Voytovich, Seminary Dean, and Archpriest John Kowalczyk, Seminary Field Education Director. In the midst of this elevation and another important focus of this meeting was negotiation of a contract formalizing the relationship between these two institutions. “This relationship has been in place for 27 years” according to Fr. John, and “today we celebrate another significant step!”
