Faithful Citizenship
Catholics have a religious and moral obligation to be faithful citizens. We carry out this duty in many ways — by running for political office; by working within political parties; by communicating our concerns and positions to our elected officials; and by joining Church and community organizations that seek justice and the common good in society.

On these pages, you will find resources to help you form your conscience in light of Catholic teaching and become better informed about issues of importance to the Catholic community. 

Jesus Christ has entrusted us with “good news” — that the human person is sacred and created in the image of God. As followers of Jesus, we have a duty to work with others to create a
society that is more worthy of the dignity of the human person. That is why we fight for the rights of the person from conception to natural death. That is why we strive for justice for the immigrant and the worker, for the imprisoned, the hungry, and the homeless. That is why we defend the rights of the old and the sick to be cared for with love and compassion. We have a duty to make this a city of love and truth.

                                                                                         — Archbishop José H. Gomez
