Catholics at the Capitol event to focus on prayer, education, advocacy

Join Catholics from across Minnesota for a day of prayer, education, and advocacy from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Thursday, April 15. The event, organized by Minnesota Catholic Conference, will form attendees in the faith – beginning with Mass at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

Featured speakers are Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Obianuju Ekeocha, a pro-life advocate and founder of Culture of Life Africa.

Attendees will be informed on issues impacting life and dignity in the state and learn how to effectively speak with their legislators as a missionary disciple. In the afternoon, participants will be sent on mission with a eucharistic procession from the Cathedral to the Capitol before meeting with local legislators. The rosary will be prayed in the Capitol rotunda on the half-hour in the afternoon.

MCC has plans in place if programming needs to be altered due to COVID-19. Cost: $15 ($20 after Jan. 31).
