ISSUES IMPORTANT TO CATHOLICS DISCUSSED ON
Catholic Community of Faith POLITICAL ROUNDTABLE
Monday, November 5 on Relevant Radio 820-AM
Chicago, IL ( October 30, 2007 ) – The Archdiocese of Chicago’s Catholic Community of Faith radio program will broadcast a roundtable political discussion focusing on issues of concern for Catholic citizens from 9 to 10 a.m. Monday, November 5.
Broadcast on Relevant Radio 820-AM, the program will be co-hosted by Fr. Greg Sakowicz, pastor of Chicago’s St. Mary of the Woods Parish, and Nicholas Lund-Molfese, Director of the Archdiocese’s Office for Peace & Justice.
“American Catholics have a moral obligation to work for the common good of the social and political community, and a part of that is being a faithful citizen,” says Lund-Molfese. “We hope to inform Catholics about current political issues so that they can better integrate their faith and their obligations as citizens.”
During the program, the show’s co-hosts, along with Philip Molfese, president of Grainger Terry, Inc., and David Curtin, former Executive Director of the Illinois Christian Coalition, will address many issues on the Illinois political landscape important to Catholics, including: Why some view politics in Illinois as dysfunctional; the controversy surrounding a new Chicago gaming venue; the pros and cons of Chicago's bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics; housing set-asides; the local and national health care crisis; and what policy initiatives are being taken to increase respect for all human life.
Listeners will be encouraged to call in to the live program at 312--1979 with their comments and questions.
