Catholic Social Ministry Gathering

In just over two weeks, the annual Catholic Social Ministry Gathering (CSMG) will virtually gather Catholic social ministry leaders for an event organized by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and 20 national Catholic organizations.

For more than 30 years, this event has brought together hundreds of participants whose faith inspires them to address pressing current domestic and global challenges affecting our most vulnerable brothers and sisters at home and around the world. Registration is $50 for this multi-day event. Financial assistance is available for leaders from under-represented ethnic, cultural, or disability communities, as well as those experiencing economic hardship.

This year’s virtual gathering will include:

-       Inspiring speakers and grassroots voices in Church and society 

-       Workshops with policy experts and community leaders 

-       Intentional opportunities for best practice-sharing among participants 

-       Resources from dozens of Catholic social ministry organizations 

-       Virtual advocacy visits with elected officials 

-       And much more.

The program will be bilingual (English and Spanish), with translation available for plenary sessions and unique Spanish-only workshops.
