WITNESS newsletter now online10 Sep

The new issue of WITNESS is now online and contains important information about preparing for the fall elections and a complete listing of the 19 Catholics @ the Capitol events.

Kentucky Catholic pastors and parish administrators have a tremendous resource in the front page article by Jason Hall, our resident policy analyst, about the challenge of voting in the next election. This could be duplicated and inserted in bulletins on some weekend before the November 6 election.

Capitol DomeFaithful Citizenship, however, is about more than elections. We urge pastors, administrators, school principals, parish committee members, and others to get involved and pick out one of the 19 Catholics @ the Capitol events to attend. It is important that we leave a Catholic imprint on the laws and policies of our government.

Another suggestion: create a small task force in your parish to organize for the C @ C events. Personal invitations to lawmakers in your community are a valuable way to get state legislators to come out and hear our concerns. We hope to see you there.

There is also a brief article on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. In addition to the two agencies listed in WITNESS, young persons applying for permission to remain in the U. S. can get help from Sister Juana Mendez SC in the Diocese of Covington. She asks that you call either of these two numbers to get an appointment: (859) 538-1177 or (513) 659-3078.
