Social Ministry gathering, Washington D.C.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops sponored their annual Catholic Social Ministry Gathering in Washington, D.C., in late February. Those attending met with Congressional staff to lobby for welfare reform that moves people off poverty, adequate funding for low-income housing, the rights of immigrant workers, foreign relief and development aid, and fair trade issues.
