How to get involved
The Bishops of Washington State encourage our advocacy in public policy as we work together to protect all human life: the unborn, individuals who live in poverty or on the margins of society, and people at the end of life. Get started here. Read the latest WSCC newsletter.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops also provides information on important issues close to our faith. Get started here.
Advocacy is one of the most effective ways to ease human suffering and build a more just world. When an unjust policy or system is changed because of our collective advocacy actions, millions of people, families and communities have the opportunity to thrive. Find out more at the CRS Lead the Way Action Center.

Maryknoll Advanced Missionary Discipleship Formation
Maryknoll's Advanced Missionary Discipleship Formation Program will help you take an intentional and inter-sectional look at our current realities locally and globally, discern what the Spirit is calling us towards, practice this distanced reality of being a community of missionary disciples, and move forward out of this crisis into building the Kin-dom of God together!
This online experience will take place every Thursday in the month of October beginning on October 1st through October 29th.
