Texas Catholic Conference Expands Its ‘I’m A Texas Catholic’ Campaign

The Texas Catholic Conference is ramping up the next phase of its popular“I’m A Texas Catholic”campaign, to instill a sense of community and promote pride about our Catholic faith to the rest of the world.
The“I’m a Texas Catholic”campaign was launched earlier this year in advance of the 84th Texas Legislature with a focus on advocating the Texas Bishops’ public policy agenda.  Its new initiatives will build on these approaches while also celebrating the diversity and community of the Catholic Church in Texas.
Future plans for the“I’m A Texas Catholic”campaign include multi-media broadcasting projects, two new bumper sticker designs, and social media promotions, like the“Howdy Pope Francis”Facebook page to celebrate the Holy Father’s first visit to the United States in September (see the

) and the"I’m A Texas Catholic"Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ImATexasCatholic) to showcase Lone Star Catholics.
An important element of the entire“I’m A Texas Catholic”campaign is to strongly encourage individuals to sign-up for the

Texas Catholic Network. This free membership gives participants an inside view of the critical issues shaping Catholic life in the Lone Star State, with updates on the Bishops’ public policy work in Washington and the Texas Capitol, as well as exclusive live events, action alerts, and the Texas Catholic Voice e-newsletter.

“There are more than 7-million Catholics spread across Texas and we are a very diverse group,” said Patrick Ryan, TCC Communications Director. “The Texas Catholic Network is an effective way to unite all of us together with our bishops so we can speak with one powerful voice on matters affecting the Church in the Lone Star State. Since membership is free, every Texas Catholic should be a part of it.”
