Catholic Advocacy Network volunteer opportunities

Imagine the good we could do if MassStPaulSeminaryMinnesota’s 1.1 million Catholics came together as one voice in defense of life and dignity….

Minnesota Catholic Conference (MCC) is expanding the Catholic Advocacy Network through parish relationship-building across the state.

And, we need your help.

Today’s most effective public advocacy is driven by relationships. To build these relationships, MCC is looking for enthusiastic, faith-filled Catholics in the pew to help grow the Catholic Advocacy Network “on the ground” —in our parishes, schools, communities, and at the Capitol.

These Catholics will serve as Legislative District Leaders and Parish Points of Contact to help spread the word about critical life and dignity issues of concern for Minnesota Catholics, and to help build the Catholic Advocacy Network in their parishes and communities.
