Bishop promotes activism

One of the marks of the Diocese of Jackson is social activism. The Bishop is often seen at the steps of the Capitol in a peaceable protest or prayer vigils for causes such as immigration reform, payday lending and an end to the death penalty.

Each year, both bishops of Mississippi (Jackson and Biloxi) are planning "Catholic Day at the Capitol" to witness to peace and justice causes.

St. John's is a site for the planning and anyone is welcome to attend. October 29th (Saturday) 10:00am until 12:00pm at the Parish Center (403 University).
