Poverty panel Tuesday

Albany Bishop Howard J. Hubbard will discuss poverty in America on Tuesday, March 27 at 7 p.m. in the Hospitality Center of St. Joseph’s Provincial House, 385 Watervliet-Shaker Road (Route 155), Latham.

Bishop Hubbard will discuss today’s conditions in light of his years of direct service to the poor as a priest in Albany’s South End, his long service with the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, and his current position as Chair of the United States Catholic Bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace.

Also speaking will be Chris Parsons, Director of the ASPIRE program for the Schenectady City Mission, who will present ideas on what local residents can do to assist those in need.

A free-will offering will be taken up for Catholic Charities’ emergency food services fund.

The session is sponsored by the Commission on Peace and Justice, St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry, and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.
