News Release: On the Formation of the Michigan Legislative Prayer Caucus

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Lansing)—Michigan Catholic Conference released the following statement regarding today’s announcement of the formation of a Michigan Legislative Prayer Caucus:

“It is the hope of the Michigan Catholic Conference that elected officials of any faith are made to feel welcome in the Michigan Legislative Prayer Caucus. The formation of the Prayer Caucus highlights the virtue of humility in the face of difficult policy decisions made by elected officials each and every day. Bringing together the various faith traditions that are represented in the Michigan Legislature sends a strong signal that differing faiths can find common ground in praying to God for courage, wisdom and strength. Today’s event reminds us of the historical fact that this great nation was founded on the bedrock constitutional right to religious liberty for all.”

Michigan Catholic Conference is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state.
