2018 Annual Assembly

Join us for the 2018 Annual Assembly on Saturday, Oct 6 at Helias High School in Jefferson City!

This year’s theme is Pope Francis at Five Years: the Church at the peripheries. This year, sessions are inspired by a quote from Pope Francis:

“The church is called to come out of herself and to go to the peripheries, not only geographically, but also the existential peripheries: the mystery of sin, of pain, of injustice, of ignorance and indifference to religion, of intellectual currents and of all misery.”

The 2018 Keynote speaker is Bishop Joseph Perry of the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Check back soon for his biography and photo.

Sessions will cover topics such as human trafficking, abortion, immigration, the environment, and more. Attend this FREE event and learn more about the Catholic Church’s efforts to go to the peripheries! Sign up will be live later this summer online and by phone.

2018 Citizen Recognition Award Nomination
The mission of the Missouri Catholic Conference (MCC) is to promote the common good in the state of Missouri and our global community. Each year, the MCC recognizes a Catholic citizen from each of the four dioceses who strives toward the same goal, giving of themselves to better the lives of others, whether that be through their work or through volunteer efforts. These award recipients exemplify good citizenship in promoting Catholic values in the public policy arena and in their local communities and parishes. Award recipients are invited to attend the MCC Annual Assembly at Helias Catholic High School in Jefferson City on Saturday, October 6, where they will receive their award, presented by a Missouri Catholic Bishop, during the closing session. We all know someone who deserves this honor; please make sure to nominate your candidate by completing this form and submitting it to the MCC by August 3, 2018.
Please list the name and phone number of at least two other persons who can describe the actions for which this person is being nominated.
