rd from noon until 1:00 p.m.  You are encouraged to join the Catholic Bishops, Governor Jan Brewer, and nearly 1,000 students, teachers, and parents who will be on hand to show our support for Catholic Schools and school choice legislation.

Also, next week the Bishops of the Arizona Catholic Conference (ACC) will make their annual trip to the State Capitol.  As part of these meetings, they will meet privately with Governor Brewer along with key legislators as part of an effort to build relationships and discuss important issues facing our State.
Most of the discussion at the Legislature remains around the roughly $5 billion deficit that exists for the remainder of this fiscal year and the one to follow.  Additionally, there are a number of other issues relating to pro-life matters, pro-family issues, school choice, immigration, and other important topics that are going to receive a lot more attention in the coming weeks and months.
Please make sure that you are signed up to continue receiving important updates and action alerts on all of these matters by going to  In the meantime, I hope to see you at the rally!
