On April 9, a sea of blue descended on the state capitol, as Catholics from throughout Texas arrived in blue shirts to promote, life, justice, and religious liberty. Approximately 75 delegates from Dallas led by Bishop Mark Seitz joined 12 bishops and over 1,000 fellow advocates.
As Bishop Farrell explains, “The Church teaches that all Catholics should participate as ‘faithful citizens’ in the public square”. This obligation includes not only voting for our leaders but also dialoguing with those elected about the polices they support. With one unified voice, Catholics advocated for policies assuring respect for the dignity of every person, including end-of-life care reform and protecting women’s health and the lives of the unborn. It was a great day to not only share our faith with others, but also to learn and grow from our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.Possibly most inspiring was the number of youth who participated in Advocacy Day, including two Dallas Diocese youth groups from St. Mark parish in Plano and The Highlands School.
