Faithful Citizenship

“We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: ‘a good Catholic is not interested in politics.’ This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern."
Pope Francis, Sept. 16, 2013

As Catholics, we have an obligation to participate dutifully in the political processes in the places in which we reside.  Guided by our faith and Church teachings, we can help shape the political landscape in our nation, state, and communities to create a more just and moral environment.


This webpage provides various resources to become informed about the political process, moral topics to consider, and ways to participate in the political process.

A Prayer for Voters

Come, Holy Spirit,


Fill our hearts and minds with your truth. Bless us as we prepare to vote. Give us wisdom that we might apply the teaching of our faith to the decisions we make. Endow us with understanding and balance as we discern what is good for our country and its people. Guide us to seek leaders who will follow your will, and may our vote be offered with confidence that your providence will bring prosperity, peace, and justice for all your people.
