"Forget Not the Poor" A Catholic-Jewish Sympsoium

This Sunday, the American Jewish Committee and the Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies will be co-sponsoring a symposium on poverty. Kathy Saile from the USCCB and Bishop Denis Madden, chairman of the USCCB Committee on Inter-religious Dialogue, , Rabbi Sid Schwartz and Professor Peter Edelman will be among the speakers.  The event is the brainchild of former US ambassador to the Holy See Thomas Melady, who is one of the national co-chairs of Catholics for Romney. He turned to IPRCS's executive director Stephen Schneck, one of the national co-chairs of Catholics for Obama, to help organize and sponsor the event. So, we will be crossing denominational and partisan divides, as we should, to address the issue of poverty. The event is free and open to the public and I encourage everyone to attend.  It begins at 2 p.m. at Caldwell Auditorium on the CUA campus. You can find out more information here
