Segment 3 & 4 – Michigan Catholic Conference promotes Catholic Advocacy Network for parishioners to stay informed
“When important issues come up that need a Catholic voice, [the Catholic Advocacy] Network members are invited to contact their lawmakers directly by sending them a pre-written message,” David Maluchnik told Detroit Catholic. “In less than a minute, Catholics can join with thousands of others to make their voice heard on important legislative issues. Catholics are called to be faithful citizens, and the Catholic Advocacy Network makes it incredibly easy to live out this important concept.”
