Catholic Days at the Capitol March 26-27

Mar 26, 2019 & Mar 27, 2019 - all day - English

The Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops invites all Catholics of all ages to gather in Tallahassee to participate in Catholic Days at the Capitol March 26-27. This two-day event provides an opportunity for the faithful to put a call to political responsibility into action and to strengthen the presence of Catholic values in the public square. By joining together to advocate for laws that protect and defend human life and dignity, Catholic Floridians can give a voice to some of the most vulnerable and marginalized populations in our state and help promote the common good for all Florida residents.

Catholic Days activities include:

  • a legislative briefing on policy issues affecting human life and dignity;
  • pre-scheduled meetings with lawmakers; luncheon with Florida’s bishops, tours of current and historic capitol buildings;
  • and celebration of the annual Red Mass of the Holy Spirit, concelebrated by Florida’s bishops to pray for those working in the legislative, judicial and executive branches of government.
