Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship

In their statement on Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, the U.S. Catholic bishops remind Catholics about the call to participate in political life.   "In the Catholic tradition," they write, "responsible citizenship is a virtue, and participation in political life is a moral obligation" (no. 13).   Visit to read the statement, watch videos, and access other great resources to help us build a better society and world.
