Missouri Catholic Conference plans assembly in Jefferson City

Catholics from the four Missouri dioceses will gather at the Missouri Catholic Conference’s Annual Assembly Saturday, Sept. 26, at the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City, Mo.

The meeting will feature speakers on criminal justice, poverty, social networking, abortion, immigration and other topics. Keynote speaker will be Sister Monica Kostielney, RSM, president and CEO of the Michigan Catholic Conference.

The MCC, the public policy agency of the state’s bishops, holds the assembly each year to provide Missouri Catholics with information on current issues that affect the common good. The assembly offers Catholics an opportunity to learn how to make a difference in their parishes and communities, providing workshops on public policy issues, social concerns and parish involvement based on faith values.

The daylong, free event is open to all Catholics throughout the state. The day starts with registration at 9:30 a.m., with a closing session at 2:30 p.m., followed by Mass.
