Catholics Care. Catholics Vote. Learn About Health Care.

In their statement on Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, the U.S. Catholic bishops apply Catholic teaching to many important issues affecting human life and dignity. One issue is "affordable and accessible health care" for all, which is "an essential safeguard or human life and a fundamental human right." They bishops also note that we should be able to provide healthcare without compromising religious convictions.

Catholics Care. Catholics Vote. Participate in Political Life.

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). For a brief summary of the U. S. bishops' statement, click here. Visit today to read the statement, watch videos, download podcasts, and access other great resources.
