MICAH ~ ELIMINATE POVERTY ON LONG ISLAND

WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH MICAH?

There’s bad news and good news. The bad news is that the LICC’s funding to staff the Mobilized Interfaith Coalition Against Hunger has come to an end. The good news, however, is that the MICAH Steering Committee has decided to attempt to transition to a volunteer-run campaign.  Many thanks to Catholic Charities for staffing MICAH during its first year, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock for funding the second year’s staffing, and to the Long Island Community Foundation, the Presbytery of Long Island, Touro Law Center and all the others who have helped MICAH continue the last half year. Many thanks also to the Rev. Paul Ratzlaff of the UU Fellowship of Huntington for chairing the MICAH Steering Committee the past year, to Cristina Notaro of St. Patrick's Church in Huntington for graciously volunteered to chair further MICAH efforts, and to Neelofer Chaudry for the work she has done as our Advocacy Director.  
As part of our transition, the MICAH steering committee is asking each congregation and faith-based organization to formally re-join the coalition and inviting them to send a representative to the re-formed steering committee, which will meet on 
Monday, November 9, at noon at the Presbytery Center in Commack
 Please contact Cristina at
crisnotaro@aol.com to RSVP.

RICHARD KOUBEK ON CATHOLIC SOCIAL POLICY

 "War destroys. And we must cry out for peace.
Peace sometimes gives the idea of stillness, but it is never stillness.
It is always an active peace.
I think that everyone must be committed in the matter of peace,
to do everything that they can,
what I can do from here.
Peace is the language we must speak."
Pope Francis
