Join Catholic Mobilizing Network this Jan. 29-Feb. 1, 2022 at the annual Catholic Social Ministry Gathering (CSMG) hosted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development, 10 USCCB departments, and 20 national Catholic organizations!
The theme of this year's virtual gathering is "Justice at the Margins." Together, we will pray, learn, and advocate together as we seek to create communities of justice where all can thrive. This call is especially important as we come out of a pandemic that further pushed some communities to the margins.
“In the power of the risen Lord, [the Church] wants to give birth to a new world, where all of us are brothers and sisters, where there is room for all those whom our societies discard, where justice and peace are resplendent.”
- Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti, no. 279
(Be sure to mark your calendar and sign up for Catholic Mobilizing Network's CSMG workshop, Healing Justice at the Margins: Restorative Approaches in Advocacy, Prison Ministries, & Communities, on Sunday, January 30th at 4:45 PM EST.)
