Save the date: Catholic Day at Capitol set for Feb. 4

JACKSON – Catholic Day at the Capitol is set for Wednesday, February 4. This fifth annual event, sponsored by the Jackson and Biloxi Dioceses, brings social justice issues to the forefront of Mississippi legislators through the lens of Catholic social teaching.
The Catholic Charities Poverty Task Force is already engaged in thorough research and prayerful reflection to determine which issues are most pressing for the 2015 session and beyond.
Make plans to join Catholics from all across the state of Mississippi on February 4, to hear social justice speakers; attend Mass concelebrated by Bishop Joseph Kopacz of the Diocese of Jackson and Bishop Roger Morin of the Diocese of Biloxi; meet with state representatives and tour the capitol building.
Event details and registration information will be available soon. Those who wish to get involved now can contact the Catholic Charities office of Parish Social Ministry, 601-383-3849
