Notes from the Hill

The Massachusetts Catholic Conference (MCC) staff has mailed to every parish in Massachusetts a packet of materials for conducting an MCC-Net sign-up weekend sometime during October or November. The packet, addressed to each pastor or administrator, includes copy-ready sign-up forms and suggested bulletin inserts. The parish sign-up campaign for new members is now an annual event. MCC-Net is a statewide legislative alert network for the Roman Catholic Church in the Commonwealth and is becoming an essential means for communicating the Church’s pro-life, pro-family and pro-poor social vision in the public arena. Parish staff could use your help in signing up for MCC-Net and helping to recruit other new members. Talk to your pastor or parish staff. Any questions can be referred to the MCC office at 617-367-6060 or
