The Rev. Doug Mitchell, center, chair of the Joint Religious Legislative Coalition’s executive board, talks to a group of people May 11 outside the Minnesota State Capitol at the statue of Floyd B. Olson, governor of Minnesota from 1931-1936. Faith leaders and citizens were observing Minnesota’s Statehood Day with an Interfaith Vigil for the Common Good. They called on public and elected officials to be good stewards of the state budget and find a just and compassionate solution to the budget deficit. Photo by Jim Bovin for The Catholic Spirit
