Faithful Citizenship Workshop – April 3, 2008
To all parish staff, parish social justice liaisons, community leaders and friends, lay ministers, ILM students, and ALL justice advocates – everyone:
I would like to call your attention to a workshop that is timely and important.
During this election year, the Council of Priests, the office for Evangelization, Justice and Peace of the Office for Pastoral Ministry and the Vicar for Clergy office are co-sponsoring workshops for clergy and laity on the document “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship: A Call to Political Responsibility from the Catholic Bishops of the United States”, issued by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. It is a timely document that calls every Catholic to prepare for the upcoming presidential election by reflecting on forming consciences for faithful citizenship. It poses challenging questions and offers a framework for responding to the political questions of our day.
- 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. – Presentation on the Middle East situation and the War in Iraq
- 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. – Faithful Citizenship Workshop
