Ask the candidates where they stand on these issues.

Do they oppose state sponsored assisted suicide?

Do they support parental rights in education and health care?

Do they support religious protections for individuals when their faith conflicts with state law?

Do they support any limitations on abortion?

It’s your faith, your future, take action and be heard!

Be sure to THINK and PRAY before you VOTE.

Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship is the teaching document of the Catholic Bishops of the United States on the political responsibility of Catholics. It provides guidance for all who seek to exercise their rights and duties as citizens. It is issued every four years before the November elections.

“Conscience is not something that allows us to justify doing whatever we want, nor is it a mere "feeling" about what we should or should not do. Rather, conscience is the voice of God resounding in the human heart, revealing the truth to us and calling us to do what is good while shunning what is evil."

Ideas to form our conscience:

1) Begin by being open to the truth and what is right.

2) Study Sacred Scripture and the teaching of the Church.

3 )Examine the facts and background information about various choices and be discerning in where we gather information.

4) Prayerfully reflect to discern the will of God.

ROE vs. WADE OVERTURNED!

 Statement by the Connecticut Catholic Public Affairs Conference Concerning U.S. Supreme Court Decision “Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization”

Today, with the U.S. Supreme Court reversing the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision on the right to abortion, we enter a new era of opportunity and responsibility to safeguard life and protect the most innocent among us. We welcome this historic reversal, which affirms the right to life of an unborn child and we pledge to do all that is possible to support pregnant women who face serious challenges.
