MCC from the Capitol: 2020 MCC Virtual Annual Assembly

The Missouri Catholic Conference canceled its in-person Annual Assembly at the Capitol this year due to ongoing concerns with COVID-19. As an alternative, we are releasing several new episodes of our podcast, MCC from the Capitol. Listen to this great collection of episodes, which covers topics ranging from immigration to religious liberty (and more!) today.

CIVILIZE IT: Dignity Beyond the Debate

"Civilize It is about making room in your heart for those with whom you disagree. We are called to recognize that each one of us is a beloved child of God and to respond in love to that reality. Civilize It is a non-partisan call to focus on the dignity of all people, even when we disagree, and to put faith in action by bearing witness to a better way forward."
