Third Meeting of Catholics and Evangelicals for the Common Good

Eastern University hosted this third meeting of Catholics and Evangelicals for the Common Good (CECG), an on-going dialogue initiative spearheaded by the Sider Center on Ministry and Public Policy and Georgetown University through the Berkley Center. Discussion centered on themes of poverty, sanctity of life, and immigration. Participants stressed the importance of maintaining existing "firewalls" on abortion regarding funding and conscience clauses and identified ways to further expand the dialogue on poverty and immigration. They also expressed encouragement for additional local and regional dialogues and discussed Catholic and Evangelical academic institutions that could act as possible facilitators.
