Catholics in the Public Square
Speak up. Participating in the Public Square has never been easier.
Contacting your legislators at both the state and national levels to express your opinions about proposed legislation or to register concern over a particular issue is as simple as sending a text, writing an email or leaving a voicemail. Don’t know who your legislators are?
Forming Your Conscience for Voting
Participation in the public square has never been easier, but it could be argued that making informed voting decisions has become more difficult than ever, especially for Catholics. Neither of the major political parties have platforms that align perfectly with Catholic moral teaching, and the rancorous atmosphere on social media and in the news can make deciding how to vote an emotional and confusing experience. The USCCB has a helpful document, called Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, to help Catholics sort through the important issues and make the best decision possible.
