Faithful Citizenship

A Catholic Call to Political Responsibility

The USCCB has a website, www.faithfulcitizenship.org, which is designed to "help you learn, share, and act on Catholic teaching about how our faith can and should shape our choices and opportunities as citizens, so that we can build a world more respectful of human life and dignity and more committed to justice and peace."

 

End the Roe Litmus Test

Support for Roe v. Wade should not be a condition for serving as a federal judge!

Use the easy-to-use website, www.endroe.org, to send this important pro-life message to your U.S. Senators.
The website has downloadable fliers and bulletin announcements for church and community leaders to help "Spread the Word!"  "Dioceses, parishes, state Catholic conferences, Catholic lay organizations, and other church and civic groups are encouraged to use the resources."
