2012 Diocesan Public Policy Convocation: Catholics in the Public Square: Our Role in Shaping Public Policy

The Diocese of Rockville Centre held a Public Policy Convocation March 3 in Hicksville in preparation for the March 13 Catholics at the Capitol Day sponsored by the New York State Catholic Conference in Albany. More than 700 Catholics attended the event and were treated to an excellent keynote address by Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, on the intersection of Faith and Politics. The video below from TelecareTV includes an interview and insightful homily by Bishop William F. Murphy of Rockville Centre, as well as the Cardinal's full address. As Cardinal Dolan said in his 2010 Catholics at the Capitol homily, religion and politics "go together as naturally as a hot dog and a bun." The Hicksville address is inspiring and well worth watching.
