Description

Join us for the 39th Annual Social Ministry Convocation (SMC) on March 3, 2018 for a day of prayer, education, and solidarity to inspire and renew us in living out Catholic Social Teaching and working for a peaceful and just society.

The theme Justice and Mercy: NOW! exemplifies the sense of urgency we all feel and is a call to act now. Start with attending the SMC and let it inspire your next steps towards justice for all.

Workshops will be available in English and Spanish, and include topics such as exploring parish social ministry, finding common ground between Pro-Life and Pro-Peace advocates, immigration, tools for advocacy, and more!

Register by February 23rd to guarantee lunch.
