Do you know someone who promotes the spiritual well-being of all people of the State of Missouri, provides leadership in the area of public policy, participates in the democratic process of government or coordinates diocesan programs and statewide projects to better the common good? If so, you should nominate them for the Missouri Catholic Conference (MCC) Citizen Recognition Award.
One individual from each of the four dioceses in Missouri will be awarded the Citizen Recognition Award at the MCC Annual Assembly on Saturday, September 28, 2013. The award will be presented by the Bishops of Missouri in the House Chamber of the Missouri State Capitol.
This is an opportunity to recognize someone in your parish who promotes gospel values that reflect respect for Catholic teaching. This could be someone who takes an active role in legislation; advocates for participation in, or improvement of, existing government services; initiates parish or community action; or responds to the MCC’s call to action.
