February 16 and 17, 2016 – Thirty-eight Catholics represented the Diocese of St. Petersburg at Catholic Days at the Capitol in Tallahassee. See photos from the event here.
Catholic Days at the Capitol is a two-day event for Catholics from around the state to gather and discuss human life and dignity issues with elected officials.
Participants attend a legislative briefing on human life and dignity issues prior to meetings with elected officials. Included in the activities is a luncheon for participants, the bishops of Florida and state legislators. The two day event concludes with the annual Red Mass of the Holy Spirit, con-celebrated by the bishops of Florida.
Thank you to Betty Beth Benson, Danny Burgess, Steve Madden, the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops, and the Office of Life Ministry for graciously taking and sharing these photos with us.
