The summer issue of WITNESS is on its way to the printer, but available to readers online now. Articles in this issue touch on several areas of public policy about which the Church has a keen interest: Marriage and the Supreme Court. freedom of conscience and religious liberty, payday lending practices that harm the least of our brothers and sisters, and others.

Dates for next year’s Catholics@theCapitol event are included and more details will be unveiled as we get closer to that February 2014 event.

As we go to press, there is intense attention being paid to Congress and the issue of comprehensive immigration reform. Because this legislative process takes so many twists and turns we did not include a lot of action steps in the newsletter. Jason Hall does portray to futility a person would experience when attempting to find a line to stand in so that he or she could enter the country legally. But to stay abreast of developments, keep checking here on the website and go to Facebook and LIKE the page created just for this reform bill: Who is Your Neighbor? We will be posting updates there as they occur. You would do well to follow us on Twitter and sign up for the Faithful Citizen advocacy list.

As always, please invite fellow parishioners, as well as family members and other Catholic friends to join you in giving an example of what it means to act as Christ does.
