Last week parishes across Missouri received a packet from the Missouri Catholic Conference providing information on the Children’s Education Initiative (CEI), a proposed state constitutional amendment that would expand educational opportunities to all school children. Some parishes have already placed information about CEI in their Sunday bulletin. (Visit the MCC website for a Questions and Answers document and other informational documents about this proposed tax credit.)
The next step will be to recruit parish volunteers who can help in gathering voter signatures. Over 220,000 signatures will have to be gathered statewide in order for CEI to be placed on the November 2014 election ballot. As an MCC network member you can play a key role in mobilizing your parish. Talk to your pastor and Catholic school principal and find out how you can help.
