Workshop provides HSCA students lessons on the impact of bullying

Jim Williams, a leading speaker about the impact of bullying and other issues, brought his message to Holy Savior Catholic Academy students on Nov. 7.

Williams, of Nashville, Tenn., provides his workshop to schools nationwide, and this year’s visit marked the third time he has spoken to students at Holy Savior and other schools in the Catholic Diocese of Wichita.

Williams provided two workshops, one geared for students in the fourth through sixth grades, and the other for students in the seventh and eighth grades.

His message to students included how bullying can harm students and why it’s important for young people to stand up for victims of bullying and other harmful actions.

“Are you ready to accept each other for who God created you to be?” Williams asked students.

Williams also shared his personal story of the impact of bullying on his life and he shared the tragedy he endured when his 19-year-old son, Curt, was killed in 1995 by a drunk driver.

During the workshop at Holy Savior, Williams gave students the opportunity to reflect on times when they may have done harmful things to fellow students and challenged them to talk about those actions with those they hurt.

“I believe that the approach Mr. Williams uses to reach students is effective because he connects with them and invites them to look deeper into their humanity,” Holy Savior Principal Dr. Delia Shropshire said.  “We are grateful to Principal Dan Dester of Blessed Sacrament Catholic School for sponsoring this presentation.”

My Being Proclaims workshop provides spirit-filled experience

More than 50 people from across the Midwest attended the annual “My Being Proclaims the Greatness of the Lord Liturgical Workshop” (MBP), hosted by Holy Savior Catholic Church on Sept. 26-29, 2013.

MBP is a spirit-filled experience designed to embrace the richness of the African-American perspective for people who participate in music and liturgical ministries of the Catholic Church.  The workshop was held at the Spiritual Life Retreat and Conference Center in Bel Aire.

Among those who led workshop sessions were: Fr. Jim Billinger of Holy Savior; Kenneth W. Louis, of Holy Comforter-St. Cyprian Catholic Church in Washington, D.C.; Valeria Foster of First Baptist Church of Silver Spring in Silver Spring, Md.; Bonita Franklin of Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Oklahoma City, Okla.; and Judith White of St. Peter Catholic Church in Woodward, Okla.

In addition to the musical workshops, liturgical seminars were offered for lectors and ministers of the Eucharist.

The workshop’s beginnings date to 1999, when Deacon Ron Ealey, who was then Pastoral Administrator of Holy Savior, invited a group called “Voices of Praise” to Holy Savior.  The choir was under the direction of Mr. Louis (Composter, Mass of St. Cyprian), from Holy Comforter-St. Cyprian Catholic Church.  Deacon Ealey also invited a choir from Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Oklahoma City, Okla.  The choirs came with the purpose of sharing their knowledge and experience in liturgical worship in the African-American experience with members of Holy Savior.

Leaders of that gathering recognized that it was the type of event that Black Catholics typically had to travel to areas outside the Midwest to experience.  At the conclusion of that gathering in 1999, Mr. Louis and Deacon Ealey decided to make the workshop an annual event and invite other choirs (non-Catholic) in the heartland to be part of the event.  As a result, the workshop occurs each year on the last full weekend in September.

Holy Savior wishes to thank all who were part of making this year’s workshop a success.
