An invitation from Indiana’s Catholic bishops

The Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us “it is necessary that all participate, each according to his position and role, in promoting the common good. This obligation is inherent to the dignity of the human person. … As far as possible, citizens should take an active part in public life” (CCC, #1913-1915).

Indiana’s bishops are inviting all Catholics in the state to join the Indiana Catholic Action Network.

The bishops encourage people to do it today at any computer with Internet access. Those who sign up are asked to bring “a servant’s heart” to the process.

To R.S.V.P., go to www.indianacc.org and click on “Legislative Action Center.”

Free membership benefits include:

  • A weekly electronic newsletter titled Legislative Update.
  • Periodic electronic action alerts.
  • Electronic access to state and federal government officials.
  • Electronic access to statewide newspapers, radio and television stations.

Also, as in years past, Glenn Tebbe, ICC executive director, will provide weekly legislative updates on Indianapolis Catholic radio.

They are broadcast at 11:05 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday mornings on WSPM 89.1 FM following Archbishop Daniel M. Buechlein’s weekly radio broadcast.

Indianapolis Catholic Radio also streams on the Internet and can be heard statewide by going to www.catholicradioindy.org and clicking on the “Listen Now” button. †
