Catholics at the Capitol: Kevin Matzek on the Important Role of Legislative Staff

We get a great perspective from a Catholic who has worked for years inside the Capitol. Kevin Matzek now works in government relations but was most recently the Executive Director of the Senate Republican Caucus. We delve into what it takes to keep our government running.

In our mailbag segment, we answer questions about “Minnesota, Our Common Home” the newly released teaching resource from the MN Catholic Conference which helps put Pope Francis’ encyclical into a local context. We also discuss the newly published ecological examen and the purpose of an examen. You can order copies of “Minnesota, Our Common Home: Study Guide Version” and the “Ecological Examen” by going to www.MNCatholic.org/OurCommonHome.

In our bricklayer segment, we let listeners know how they can get involved with the Catholic Advocacy Network to stay informed on all that is happening during the legislative session and take action. To sign up visit www.MNCatholic.org/ActionCenter.
