Be a Part of It: Washington Briefing Includes Steele, Pelosi, Keehan and Much More

 |  NCR Today

Can American Catholics of differing political views – conservative, moderate, liberal, Democrat, Republican – get together in one place at the same time and discuss public policy issues in a civil manner through a Catholic lens?
The answer, gratefully, is yes. And you can be part of it.
On May 6-7, Catholics from all over the country will gather for “A Washington Briefing for the Nation’s Catholic Community,” an event cosponsored by Trinity Washington University and NCR. Among the speakers: Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Catholic Health Care Association President Sr. Carol Keehan, George Mason University law professor Helen Alvare, Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI), Network Executive Director Sr. Simone Campbell, former US Ambassadors to the Holy See Thomas Melady and James Nicholson, NCR contributors John Allen and Tom Roberts, pollster John Zogby and many more.
The full program and registration information can be found here.
The conference promises to be informative – and maybe even a little bit of fun.
