According to figures in a recently published in a report by the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of households in Texas receiving food stamps has almost tripled since 2000. The report also noted that the percentage of Texas households on food stamps increased from 6.9 percent in 2000 to 14 percent in 2013. With nearly 6 million uninsured people, Texas has the highest uninsured rate in the nation.

Issues such as these are why more than 700 Catholics from the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston will travel to Austin on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, for the “Catholic Faith In Action Advocacy Day.” The event is organized by the Texas Catholic Conference, the public policy voice of the Catholic bishops of Texas.
