The Legislative Session will be in full swing and the Diocese of Austin and the Texas Catholic Conference are inviting our parish community to use its voice on some important issues this spring. St. Austin parishioners are invited to participate in ADVOCACY DAYS on January 28, 2017 (Family and Life) and April 4, 2017 (Justice and Charity). All are invited to participate either by joining a large group gathering at the Capitol to visit legislators or by calling your legislator's office on those days. If you would like to join a group of St. Austin parishioners, please contact Pat Macy. No experience is needed!
For a list of tips on contacting your legislator, contact information for Central Texas Legislators, a list of issues the Texas Catholic Conference is highlighting this session and the call-in sheet for Advocacy Days, look under FORMS on the right hand panel. You are encouraged to sign up to receive e-mail alerts from the Texas Catholic Conference on issues important to our Catholic community as well.
