CLICK HERE for the issue of November 11, 2018: "Eradicating Racism," authored by Leadership Chair Bob Bonnot, represents a new endeavor by AUSCP called "Assembly to Action" to inform, inspire, and invite action on issues that have been determined priorities by the AUSCP Assembly. Too often, great goals and resolutions are approved at the annual Assembly and then quickly forgotten. To help with follow-up and implementation of the Assembly proposals, the Leadership Team hopes to publish occasional issues of "Assembly to Action." You are encouraged to share these issues with your bishops, friends, and parishioners.
