2020 Census

Census Day is April 1, 2020. Participation in the decennial census is vitally important as census counts determine political representation, funding and statistics to plan for the future. It is important that everyone be counted. Please read the cardinal’s letter along with a signed proclamation in support of this nation-wide effort:
