There is less than a month until the Missouri Catholic Conference 50th Anniversary celebration! This week we’re highlighting the social justice workshop, which will feature speaker Joan Rosenhauer, Vice President of Catholic Relief Services (CRS).
Joan joined CRS in April 2009 and is responsible for leadership of the agency’s mission of assisting Catholics in the U.S. to act on their faith by helping people in need around the world. She leads CRS’ domestic programs, including five regional offices across the U.S.
Joan canvases how each of us is called by the Gospel to bring God’s love into the world, responding to the suffering of His children and protecting His creation. Our Church is on the front lines wherever people are poor, hungry, victims of natural disasters (Hurricanes Harvey and Irma) and violence, or suffering in any way. This workshop will explore how our Church brings Catholic social teaching, including Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si‘, to life every day, and how each of us can be involved through prayer, through learning and sharing, and through advocacy.
Register for the 50th Anniversary celebration and hear Joan’s workshop. The event will be held on Saturday, October 7, at the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Jefferson City. For more information and to register, please visit our website. Remember, this is a FREE event!
