Please join fellow Catholics from around the state for this two-day event in April 2017 as they gather in Tallahassee to participate in Catholic Days at the Capitol. Participants will attend a legislative briefing on issues and then visit with their elected officials to speak about the issues. By joining with Floridians who share our faith to advocate for laws that protect and defend human life and dignity, we can give a voice to some of the most vulnerable and marginalized populations in our state and help promote the common good for all of Florida's residents.
A luncheon on Day Two is attended by the bishops of Florida, legislators and Catholic Days participants. The day ends with the Votive Mass of the Holy Spirit (Red Mass) celebrated by the bishops of Florida for the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government. The third day is for travel.
The Diocese of Palm Beach will have a bus that will pick up participants in three different locations of the diocese: at St. Vincent Ferrer in Delray Beach, at the Cathedral of St. Ignatius Loyola in Palm Beach Gardens, and at St. Bernadette in Port St. Lucie.
Preregistration is required. DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION: March 14, 2017
