The Virginia Catholic Conference has set its annual Catholic Advocacy Day in Richmond for Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014. The day is an opportunity for Commonwealth Catholics to join together in the Virginia capital to urge lawmakers to protect life, the poor and vulnerable and to work for justice.
Watch this short video for the recent Catholic Advocacy Day highlights.
The Conference invites Advocacy Network members, parish groups, Catholic schools and other interested individuals to join in advocating for respect life, family, education and social justice issues. Arlington Bishop Paul Loverde and Richmond Bishop Francis DiLorenzo will offer welcoming remarks for the event, which will include prayer, briefings on issues important to Catholics and the Conference, and scheduled visits to legislators’ offices. Lunch and Mass will follow.
More details will be announced as they become available.
For planning purposes, parishes, schools, diocesan offices, and other organizations are respectfully asked to include this Save the Date notice on their calendars well in advance.
