Hope on the Horizon: Latest Messenger and MCC from the Capitol on COVID-19 Vaccines


In the latest edition of MCC Messenger, which will appear in diocesan papers later this month, we focus on the new COVID-19 vaccines, addressing common questions and concerns you may have. We have made this material available to you on our website ahead of its appearance in papers.

Accompanying this Messenger is a new episode of MCC from the Capitol, during which MCC Executive Director Tyler McClay talks COVID-19 vaccines with Bishop McKnight of the Diocese of Jefferson City, and Dr. Keith Starke, internist and Senior Advisor to the Mercy Hospital System in St. Louis.

Bishop McKnight and Dr. Starke answer common questions about the COVID-19 vaccines from both a Catholic and medical perspective, shining light on the truths and misconceptions about these vaccines, from their connections to morally-compromised cell lines, efficacy, safety, and more. 

As we all will eventually have the opportunity to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, we  encourage you to read and/or listen to these latest releases from the MCC, and to share them with your family and friends who might benefit from the information. The podcast is available on our website, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and Apple Podcasts. Click here to listen.
