Get Involved: Elections 2008

September 11, 2008

What does the Catholic Church teach on key issues? Should Catholics participate in political life? How do we form our consciences? Where do you go to register to vote in Maryland and DC?

Get the answers here! Read the United States bishops’ statement, Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship: A Call to Political Responsibility, download a podcast on Catholic Social Teaching, join Catholics from around the nation in prayer or check out the youth resources.

“In the Catholic Tradition, responsible citizenship is a virtue, and participation in political life is a moral obligation. This obligation is rooted in our baptismal commitment to follow Jesus Christ and to bear Christian witness in all we do.” – Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, 13
