Catholic Social Ministry Gathering 2016
2016 Catholic Social Ministry Gathering

Called to Live Mercy in Our Common Home
January 23 - 26, 2016, Washington D.C.
Omni Shoreham Hotel

As we look forward to the Year of Mercy, Pope Francis calls Catholics to reflect on what it means to live mercy in our world today.  Join more than 500 national Catholic leaders at the 2016 Catholic Social Ministry Gathering as we convene to pray, meet, learn, and act together for the good of all in our common home.

    “Everything is connected. Concern for the environment… needs to be       joined to a sincere love for our fellow human beings and an                           unwavering commitment to resolving the problems of society.”

                                                       - Pope Francis, Laudato ‘Si, No. 91

Organized by the USCCB Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development in collaboration with 16 national Catholic organizations, CSMG participants share inspiration, fresh perspectives, and new vision for the challenges of our time.  Don’t miss this excellent networking opportunity with social ministry professionals from across the country as we lift our voices together in faith!

The 2016 Catholic Social Ministry Gathering will go rain or shine. We are closely monitoring the weather for this upcoming weekend. Knowing how quickly forecasts can change, please check the weather and stay safe. When you arrive, the CSMG family will be here to greet you with open arms. Check here for updates.
