Our 6th episode will discuss Civic Engagement and Voting, highlighting the JPIC committee, an Op-Ed written by representatives from Northeast Ohio Congregations, and reflections from the Diocese Social Action Office about how Catholics move through election season. We hope this episode will be a way for listeners to continue to be present to the election and consider that their participation is essential, reflective, and (as noted from John Lewis' words) sacred.
