Legislative Advocacy

"Politics, according to the Social Doctrine of the Church, is one of the highest forms of charity, because it serves the common good."

Pope Francis

Our faith calls us to "meddle in politics" and protect the vulnerable in our society. The Minnesota Legislative Session opens on January 8, 2019. This year there are two chances to join with others at the Capitol to raise our Catholic voices!
