Note from the Diocese

The Chancery offices have been made aware of a number of parishes receiving letters from the “Faith & Freedom Coalition.”

The letter details several initiatives designed to encourage voter registration among your congregation and makes available “non-partisan voter guides” that allege compliance with IRS rules and regulations.

Please know that this letter is not endorsed by the Diocese, nor the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The USCCB maintains this resource https://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/faithful-citizenship/forming-consciences-for-faithful-citizenship-title to help members of the Catholic faithful form their conscience. We encourage you to share the faithful citizenship link as the only resource for members of your faith community as election season nears.
