The covenant with the poor

Last year, the New York State Catholic Conference released Restoring the Covenant with the Poor at the Public Policy forum. This pastoral letter, which addresses our responsibility to the poor and the vulnerable, is available here.

Martha H. Pofit, Director of Public Policy for the Albany Diocese, will present a talk entitled Implementing the Covenant with the Poor at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 17 during the Spring Enrichment program at the College of St. Rose. If you missed the May 1 deadline for registering at the $10 price, you still can register, but now the cost is $12. The program brochure and registration form are available here.
