|Become an Advocacy "Archangel" for Galveston-Houston|
|January 8, 2013|
The 83rd Session of the Texas Legislature begins today and the Texas bishops have worked in collaboration with the staff of the Texas Catholic Conference (TCC) to formulate legislative priorities for 2013. While they are extensive and encompass a broad range of important issues, especially pro-life concerns, there are three key areas in which the TCC will focus significant resources: payday lending, advance directives and school choice.
The TCC has requested that each diocese create a network of Advocacy "Angels" at the parish level to assist in coordinating a grass roots response throughout the legislative session to engage parishioners in continuing their roles as faithful citizens. The Galveston-Houston "Archangels" will lead the effort at parishes to inform and educate the faithful on the legislative agenda and to encourage their participation in the public square in a variety of ways, i.e., emails, cards, letters, phone calls, visits to local legislators, etc.
