Archbishop Charles Chaput hosted a town hall style forum on faithful citizenship on Saturday Oct. 13. St Elizabeth Parish in Uwchlan, Chester County, hosted the event. Hundreds of people from the area attended to hear Archbishop Chaput speak and answer questions about Catholics and politics. He addressed issues of social justice, the HHS mandate and the sanctity of life, among others. During a question and answer session, he said, “I call you as a Catholic to forget about the labels, be a liberal sometimes, a conservative sometimes, but a Catholic first.”
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
