Point 7 Now! Conference

A national conference on global poverty will be held on October 27-28, 2006 at St. Mary's Cathedral in San Francisco. This is an opportunity to join Catholics throughout the United States and around the world for a landmark gathering to mobilize against global poverty.

This conference is being supported by many national and international Catholic organizations such as Catholic Relief Services and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Featured speakers will be Jeffrey Sachs, author of The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities of Our Time and one of Time Magazine's top 100 influential world leaders; Richard Blum, David O'Brien, Margaret O'Brien Steinfels, and many others.

This would be a wonderful opportunity for your parish social justice or Just Faith group. The registration for the two days is $100, but groups of 5 or more are now invited to attend for $200 or $40/person. Call 800-937-8782 for more information.
