Catholic Social Ministry Gathering 2018



The Catholic Social Ministry Gathering is organized by the Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in collaboration with 4 other USCCB departments and 16 national Catholic organizations. This central gathering of Catholic social ministry leaders in the U.S. annually brings together hundreds of participants whose faith inspires them to respond to pressing current domestic and global challenges relating to poverty, war, injustice and the promotion of human life and dignity.

Young Leaders Initiative is about the Catholic Social Ministry Gathering striving to recognize, encourage, and prepare young and diverse leaders of our Church’s advocacy and social ministries. Students and faculty from colleges and universities are invited to join other professionals and volunteers in Catholic social ministry deepening their faith and understanding, and raising their voices with legislators on matters of national and international concern.
