Clergy Attend Shore Health System Lunch and Learn

The guest speaker at the Shore Health System November lunch and learn session for clergy was Michael Silgen, vice president of strategic planning and business development for Shore Health System. Silgen gave the clergy and lay ministers an update on plans for a regional medical center.

The clergy lunch and learn series is offered as part of the Shore Health System Chaplain Associates Program. The lunch meetings are free and open to clergy from Talbot, Dorchester, Caroline and Queen Anne’s counties.

The next lunch and learn session will be held on Wednesday, January 19 and will feature Rev. David Berg, who will discuss the Clinical Pastoral Education sponsored through Shore Health System. Clinical Pastoral Education is an advanced clinical and pastoral training program that prepares individuals for ministry with the sick and their families. Rev. Berg, the Shore Health System CPE program supervisor, will be joined by current and past students in the program.
