Thank you to all of our participants, sponsors, exhibitors, and collaborating organizations for your contributions to the success of CSMG 2016. Details of the program are available in the CSMG 2016 Program Book.
From January 23 - 26, 2016 hundreds of Catholic leaders gathered to lift
our voices in the public square, and to step forward in faith for
justice, peace, and the common good. The theme of the 2016 Catholic Social Ministry Gathering took its inspiration from the Jubilee Year of Mercy, and from Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si, calling for an integral ecology that connects justice for our sisters and brothers with care of all creation.
The Catholic Social Ministry Gathering is organized by the Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development in collaboration with 4 other USCCB departments and 16 national Catholic organizations. This central gathering of Catholic social ministry leaders in the U.S. annually brings together hundreds of participants whose faith inspires them to respond to pressing current domestic and global challenges relating to poverty, war, injustice and the promotion of human life and dignity. Visit our CSMG Highlights page to learn more.
In 2017 we will not hold the Catholic Social Ministry Gathering in Washington, D.C. due to the larger national convocation that USCCB will lead in Orlando, Florida from July 1-4, 2017. Consult your local diocese for information about delegations that will be forming to join in The Joy of the Gospel in America, a national convocation of Catholic leaders.
During 2017 the CSMG community will continue to raise our collective voices on behalf of poor and vulnerable people. Plan to join us on February 7, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time for a special Advocacy Issues Briefing Webinar. The briefing and our usual advocacy resources will prepare us to take our issues of concern to our Senators and Representatives in their home district offices during the Congressional Recess week of February 20-24, 2017.
Saturday, February 3 – Tuesday, February 6, 2018
