The Catholic Way to Vote

Help Build the Kingdom on Earth

We are called to live our faith in all aspects of our lives, but – when it comes to voting – this can be difficult. Over the next several weeks, immerse yourself in the Church’s teaching and gain a fuller understanding of the Church’s commitment to a consistent ethic of life which guides us to be advocates for a variety of issues related to life and human dignity. Of course, not every issue is morally equivalent, nor can commitment to one issue excuse indifference to the rest. We will not be telling you for whom or what to vote. Rather, to inform your vote we encourage discernment, prayer, and a universal call to holiness and compassion. Before exploring the resources, we invite you to read more about the US Bishops’ teaching on voting decisions and learn how this initiative came to be.
