Becoming "a Church that is Poor and for the Poor"Mark your calendar to join us for CSMG 2014 from February 2-5, 2014 at the Omni Shoreham hotel, Washington, D.C. We are developing an exciting program around a theme that takes its inspiration from the words and vision of Pope Francis: Becoming "a Church that is Poor and for the Poor". Registration will open in September 2013.
Connect in person with social ministry colleagues from across the United States–an opportunity to share best practices, plan for emerging needs, and identify areas for more effective cooperation. Expand these opportunities by joining the Gathering’s virtual community on Facebook and Twitter.We look forward to seeing you at CSMG 2014!
Learn about the larger picture of Catholic social ministry, and pressing current domestic and global challenges relating to human life and dignity, and justice and peace. Inform others with the experience and perspective of your own diocese, organization, or faith community.
Pray together to renew our spirit and vision for mission. Wonderful liturgies will mark our gathering on Sunday afternoon and our sending forth on Wednesday. Opportunities for daily Mass will add to this time of spiritual as well professional enrichment.
Advocate for policies that will protect and support people suffering poverty and injustice. In this defining experience of the Gathering, the renewed purpose of our meetings and our prayer flows directly to Capitol Hill, where as one faith community we bring to legislators our concerns and proposals about policies affecting the most vulnerable among us, both locally and globally. Then continue this effort after the Gathering in Washington through district visits with members of congress in your own community.
