A message from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia
At the request of Archbishop Chaput, I am writing to share information about an important upcoming webinar, “Parents, Kids and Porn: The Conversation.” The goal of this free program is to equip parents to initiate age-appropriate discussion with children about the pitfalls of technology, social media and pornography.
Sponsored by the Religious Alliance Against Pornography and the Archdiocese of Kansas City, the webinar will be presented by Jasper Hall, Jr., President of PureHope, a foundation dedicated to providing Christian solutions in a sexualized culture, and Dan Martin, Campus Pastor at Chase Oaks Church in Fairview, TX and a frequent seminar and conference speaker on topics addressing Family, Parenting, Marriage, Christian Leadership and Technology.
The free, one hour webinar will take place on two different dates, which are listed below.
Interested parties may register by visiting https://register.gotowebinar.com/rt/946918494774233091?source=RAAP.
The attached flyer contains additional information.
Please consider sharing this information broadly with others. Thank you.
