2016 General Election Voter Guides

Catholic Citizenship informs clergy, religious and laity about public policy issues and their affect on our society's common
good.  Our mission is to promote authentic Catholic Social Teaching in the public square, as promulgated by the Magisterium.  Our Bishops remind us that "responsible citizenship is a virtue, and participation in political life is a moral obligation."  

Candidate Position Papers highlight where candidates stand on Marriage, the Right to Life, Taxes, and Parental Rights.  The Roman Catholic Bishops of Massachusetts have spoken out on most of the issues presented in the papers.
