Catholic Voter Information Night

From the Pew to the Polls   

Minnesota Catholic Conference fall tour coming to Duluth and Central Minnesota next week!

The Minnesota Catholic Conference (MCC), the public policy voice of the
Catholic Church in Minnesota, is offering you an opportunity to go beyond partisan politics and explore how we can all better "live Gospel values" when considering the policy issues, decisions, and people we choose to support.

Thursday, Oct. 2, St. Benedict Catholic Church (Duluth), 6:30 p.m.

Thursday, Oct. 9, St. Andrew's Catholic Church (Brainerd), 6:30 p.m.

Tuesday, Oct. 14, St. Patrick Catholic Church (Hinckley), 7:00 p.m.

Join me! We will:

  • Challenge ourselves to think about politics in a new way
  • Identify and advocate for public policies that promote the fullness of life and human dignity
  • Reflect on how to live as a faithful, Christ-filled citizen in a challenging culture

At the event you'll also receive the NEW Minnesota voter guide The Issues, the Candidates & Your Vote  to help you make tough, informed decisions about the elected officials you support.

Event and materials are FREE.
