MCC Executive Director Mike Hoey Retires After Nearly 40 Years

After nearly 40 years of dedicated work serving the Catholic Church in the public policy arena, Missouri Catholic Conference (MCC) Executive Director Mike Hoey has retired.

Throughout his long career with the MCC, Mike Hoey stood up for the most vulnerable among us: the poor, the sick, the unborn, immigrants, and refugees, and embraced Catholic teaching to advocate for the common good. His work alongside legislators and others has garnered many victories for the people, and has protected Catholic values and ideals.

He worked tirelessly, but never forgot to have fun along the way. His boisterous laugh and sense of humor will be missed within the office and around the Capitol. Mike plans to enjoy spending time with family, landscaping his backyard (aptly named “Hoey Henge”) and traveling. We wish you the best, Mike, as you embark on your journey into retirement!
