Forming our Consciences for Faithful Citizenship

The bishops have asked us to form our consciences as we prepare to vote in the upcoming elections. Forming our consciences is always about listening to God through the teachings of Scripture and the church. These resources are designed to help Catholics do the difficult, but important, work of being faithful citizens and voting according to the dictates of a well-formed conscience.

A Call to Political Responsibility from the Catholic Bishops of the United States - Forming our Consciences for Faithful Citizenship

Use these resources to begin the process of prayer and study so that you can vote in good conscience. For more information on the social doctrine of the church, visit the Faithful Citizenship websites at:
