Talking Poverty

The Consultation Center, Siena College, the Commission on Peace and Justice, and several local parishes are presenting panel discussions that will allow attendees to:
- Appreciate the totality of issues that must be explored when Catholics consider voting and ongoing political advocacy;  
- Understand how Catholic Social Teaching speaks to the totality of issues;  
- Gain some sense of how economic issues in particular are impacting people, especially the poor and vulnerable.
This panel will be offered in three locations from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.:

Wednesday, September 19 St. Pius X Parish 23 Crumitie Road, Loudonville

Thursday, September 20 St. Kateri Tekakwitha Parish 2216 Rosa Road, Schenectady

 Thursday, September 27 St. Michael the Archangel Parish 175 Williams Road, Troy
