The Pa Catholic Conference - limiting its focus to school choice

Your "Debating points of new Pa. budget" appeared in the March 31 issue of the Catholic Standard and Times. Though you state that "The Pennsylvania Catholic Conference (PCC) will be following the debate on a number of different line items," the article primarily focused on school choice vouchers and funding for Catholic Charities (it does also voice concern about health care coverage.). If one is "Interested in Catholic issues," your article goes on to urge them to "Join the Pennsylvania Catholic Advocacy Network to receive news and action alerts about the state budget and many other legislation and public policy considerations. Visit http://www.pacatholic.org/advocacy." At this time, your action alerts seem to focusing almost exclusively on school choice vouchers. Have any recently been sent on pro life concerns or the defense of marriage? How have you been updating Pennsylvania Catholics with regard to "Family Planning" funds in the Pennsylvania budget?

About Me

I am an enormously blessed husband and dad. In regard to my Catholic theological background, I have a certificate in social ministry & a master's degree (moral theology concentration), as well as a catechetical diploma from the Vatican's Sacred Congregation for the Clergy (Nope, I am not now - nor have I have ever been - a seminarian, deacon, or priest.). I feel particularly proud to have a mandatum. I also have a doctorate in Christian counseling psychology.

And yup, that's me!

And yup, that's me!
