October 25 - learn about voting and conscience formation

With Election Day just two weeks away, the St. Columban Mission for Justice, Peace and Ecology is offering a free webinar on voting and conscience formation tomorrow (October 25) at 7:30 p.m. The speaker is Jill Rauh, Director of Education and Outreach for the Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. 

Among the questions she will address in the 90-minute session are these: 
-       How do you cast a vote that's in line with your values and is best for your community? 
-       How do you form your conscience? 
-       How do you evaluate what's true and not? 
-       What role does faith play in this?
Before joining the USCCB in 2007, Rauh developed Catholic social teaching resources with the Education for Justice project at the Center of Concern, worked in civic engagement with Latino youth, contributed to parish and campus ministry efforts, and served as an international volunteer with Rostro de Cristo in Ecuador.
