The network is composed of inter- ested Catholics who wish to be politically active in deliv- ering the church's official position to state government leaders through phone calls, letters and e-mail. Currently, the ICC publishes the I-CAN Update newsletter, which reaches over 5,000 Catholic households, religious communities, and diocesan offices statewide on a regular basis. In addition, coordinators directly contact networkers when important votes are com- ing up in the legislature. Using today's technology to reach as many Catholics as pos- sible, the ICC has established and maintains a home page on the internet to inform and alert viewers of the latest legislative action. The page offers press releases, position papers, a mis- sion statement, links to other state Catholic conferences and direct links to legislators who are on-line. E-mail is also being used to alert interested parties of urgent action alerts. The ICC home page is located at or e-mail at Those interested in learning more about the ICC should con- tact their ICC diocesan coordi- nator: Judy Neff (812) 424-5536 or e-mail E Peoples ! rust Company SOUTH MAIN STREET P.O.
