Faithful Citizens is a multi-parish and multi-community group of concerned and interested citizens who want to keep apprized of current social issues and situations which need our attention and who want to bring Christian principles to bear on these concerns.. The group meets periodically throughout the year at a host parish from 12:00 to 1:00. Lunch is included or participants are welcome to bring their own bag lunch with them. This ministry is part of Catholic Charities outreach in the rural area of the Archdiocese of Louisville.
