ST. PAUL – Join the Minnesota Catholic Conference (MCC) on Tuesday, May 7, at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul any time between 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for an opportunity to speak with your legislators and spend time in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, praying for your legislators. MCC will have a private room set up for adoration. Whether you come before or after work, on a lunch break, or make a day of it in the Twin Cities, you are welcome to stay and pray as your schedule permits. For those who may be driving in for the day, you may also want to tour the Capitol and visit any of the nearby churches for Mass.
Your action is needed in these final days of the legislative session. Not only do your legislators need to hear from you on a number of important bills, but they also need your prayers as they discern how to vote.
For those who feel they need some direction on how to speak with their legislators, MCC will be offering brief, “Lobbying 101” talks at 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m.
