San Antonio, Texas, Aug 7, 2012 / 23:23 pm
Over 100 Catholic Hispanic leaders will gather in Miami, Florida Aug. 24-26 to discuss how to defend faith, family and religious freedom in contemporary America.
"This conference will be a critical opportunity for lay Catholic leaders from across the U.S. to find answers in today's threatening political landscape," Robert Aguirre, president and CEO of the San Antonio-based Catholic Association of Latino Leaders, said Aug. 6.
"All Catholics are called to be active participants in the political process, and have a civic and moral obligation to vote responsibly in the upcoming presidential election," Aguirre added.
The association is sponsoring its seventh annual gathering of business and community leaders at the Miami Marriot Biscayne Bay. The conference is titled "The Family: Evangelization and Public Witness."
