This is a quick guide to what Occupy Catholics will be up to as we support the Occupy movement’s one-year anniversary in New York City on September 17. We call for the support of all those who can join us and the prayers for all who can’t. The schedule is only approximate, and it is sure to change with conditions on the ground. Follow @OccupyCatholic for updates.
