Keynote Speaker - Most Reverend Archbishop Bernard Hebda
Archbishop Hebda’s commitment to service and justice has been a key component of his ministry, spanning parish priesthood on the south side of Pittsburgh; Director of the Newman Center at Slippery Rock University; Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts at the Vatican; and Bishop and Archbishop roles in the Diocese of Gaylord, Michigan, and the Archdioceses of Newark and St. Paul and Minneapolis.
With a BA from Harvard in Political Science and a law degree from Columbia University, legal experience at an international law firm based in Pittsburgh, and years of seeing the impact of policy decisions on individuals and families, Archbishop Hebda is a strong advocate for justice and human dignity.
Theme: Serving the Common Good
Our 2020 Day on the Hill theme comes from a quotation from Pope Francis:
“Politics […] is one of the highest forms of charity, because it serves the common good.”
In 2020, hundreds of people of faith will come together to serve the common good!
Join faithful advocates from across the state on April 1, 2020 to reflect on why we make our voices heard, to plan for continued actions in our home communities, and to advocate for meaningful change in the state of Minnesota.
