The Missouri Catholic Conference (MCC) is the public policy agency of the Catholic Church in Missouri. The Missouri bishops serve as the MCC’s Board of Directors. The bishops appoint a 15 member Public Policy Committee to provide input to the MCC on an ongoing basis. The MCC is actively involved in all levels of government, especially state and federal issues. The MCC promotes the common good by advocating for public policy that upholds the sanctity and dignity of all human life.
