IOWA CITY – Catholic Relief Services will hold a full-day Diocesan Advocacy Team training on Satuday, May 21, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at St. Patrick Church.

With Catholic Social Teaching as the foundation, the objectives of the team are to strengthen the relationship between the Davenport Diocese, parishes and CRS; provide leadership development training to increase the effectiveness of Catholic advocacy efforts locally, nationally and globally; and engage local Catholic communities to help more Catholics live their faith in solidarity with the poor.

The training is designed to help participants take the first step toward becoming a more engaged and effective Catholic leader. There is no cost, and a continental breakfast and lunch will be served. Training modules may include:

• Charity and Justice: Bridging the gap

• Christian Advocacy: Bringing the Kingdom one step closer

• Not just the usual suspects: How to identify and recruit more Catholics into our important work

• Speaking truth to power: Negotiating the local and national legislative landscape

• Faith and action: Making faith complete

To register or get more information, contact CRS Program Officer Daniel Romero at (312) 733-5127 ext. 7 or at daniel.romero@crs.org.
