2020 Assembly Report

The videos and information are building!  Keynotes are here from our 2020 Assembly: Our Catholic Faith in the Political World. There’s more to come, including an election report and the reports given by Working Groups to the assembly. Come on back to check it out!

With the approval of Michael Joncas, who has written the lyrics of “A Place Called Home” using the tune of Finlandia, the AUSCP has adopted the song as a theme. It expresses the hope that all humans will find “a place called home.” The song, with video, was used during the 2020 virtual assembly to highlight images of assemblies in previous years, when members and friends were physically precent.
