Restorative Justice Peacemaking Circles -   King County Juvenile Court is currently piloting Peacemaking Circles as an alternative, community-based way to resolve certain juvenile felony cases.  This reduces incarceration, fosters healing for both victims and offenders, and affords a profound opportunity for transformation. This is the Gospel in action and it is unfolding right here in our own backyard.  The Archdiocese of Seattle is actively involved in promoting this approach!  Find out how your parish can participate: 
(Information on locations/alternative sessions will be posted as it becomes available.)
