Verse of the Day


Welcome To Our Parish Website!

Why should I vote/Does the Church tell me who to vote for? 

In the Catholic Tradition, responsible citizenship is considered a virtue, and participation in political life – especially voting – is considered a moral obligation. In their document Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, the U.S. Bishops note, “The Church’s obligation to participate in shaping the moral character of society is a requirement of our faith.” Being a faithful citizen requires a well-formed conscience, aided by reading Scripture, reflecting on Church teaching, examining the issues and praying. The Catholic Church neither endorses nor opposes specific candidates for public office or political parties, nor does it tell Catholics for whom to vote. Rather, each Catholic must prayerfully reflect on the candidates’ positions in light of the teachings of Christ and His Church, and participate in the privileged opportunity to promote the common good as they cast their vote in accordance with Church teaching. Use that opportunity on November 8. For more information, visit www.Hbgdiocese.org/vote.
