Faithful Citizenship

Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship is the teaching document of the USCCB on the political responsibility of Catholics.

As Catholics, we are called to participate in public life in order to help build a better world.

Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship provides guidance for Catholics as they exercise their rights and duties as citizens.

Catholic teachings and the word of the gospel help us consider challenges in public life, contribute to greater justice and peace for all people, and evaluate policy positions, party platforms, and candidates’ promises and actions.

"We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern." —Pope Francis
