Welcome to the Catholic Advocacy Network
“…All believers are called to be faithful citizens, to become informed, active and responsible participants in the political process…’Believers are called to be a community of conscience within the larger society and to test public life by the values of Scripture and the principles of Catholic social teaching.”
(Faithful Citizenship, 2003, pastoral letter of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops)
The Catholic Advocacy Network is intended to familiarize users with legislative issues and social action needs communicated by the national and state bishops’ conferences or other authoritative Church agencies. It is a centralized source of information giving “alerts” on current issues and events.
The Network will provide links to additional sites and articles for further education, in-depth review and action steps. It offers Catholics the ability to read about issues, grasp key message points, send a letter-to-the-editor to their local newspaper and/or communicate concerns or thanks to their state representative, senator and/or governor.
“Alerts” are sent out when a legislative decision is expected, or when immediate action is needed; points at which your involvement will have the greatest impact.
