VCC highlights how the church serves Virginia

First slide

Although there are 700,000 Catholics in the commonwealth of Virginia, many may be unaware of the significant impact the church has on the state’s faith, workforce, education, health care and social services. To highlight the multifaceted work of the Arlington and Richmond Dioceses, the Virginia Catholic Conference (VCC) has released a brochure, “Because We Are Catholic — Faith, Education, Health Care, Social Services and Community.” It includes a statistical breakdown of how the church serves communities throughout the state, including that Catholic schools save Virginia $315 million annually. The VCC distributed the brochure to state legislators during the recent General Assembly in Richmond.
