2022 PA Catholic Voters Guide

"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 offeringthe best of themselves so that the leader can govern." - Pope Francis, 9/16/13

As Catholics, we are called upon to form our consciences for faithful citizenship for the good of all. More information on that process can be found on website of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops here.

This voter guide was developed in order to start the process for voters to discern how to respond to elections this November. We are taught by our Bishops to “hear, receive, and act upon the Church's teaching in the lifelong task of forming his or her own conscience. Foremost amongst those teachings are the four basic principles of Catholic social doctrine: the dignity of the human person, the common good, subsidiarity, and solidarity (Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, no. 160). With this foundation, Catholics are better able to evaluate policy positions, party platforms, and candidates 'promises and actions in light of the Gospel and the moral and social teaching of the Church in order to help build a better world.” This Voter Guide is in no way intended to tell Catholics how to vote. It is intended as a platform from which to learn more about several candidates for office, in particular for the races for PA Governor and US Senate. Candidates are listed in alphabetical order.
