Working for the common good requires a call to faithful citizenship — a call to participate actively and effectively in the public square.
If Christians are citizens of a world to come, they are citizens of this world too — citizens whose faith certainly can help to influence and shape society’s well-being.
More than a few Catholic voters in the United States would be delighted if their pope, their bishop, their pastor or someone “in authority” would tell them, come Election Day, whom to vote for. That is not going to happen, but both the catechism and the U.S. bishops’ document, “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship,” offer guidance on church teaching and political life.
Help us keep you informed -- CatholicPhilly.com can't do it without youDuring CatholicPhilly.com's fall donation campaign, you have a way to help us deliver the kind of news you need to know about the Catholic Church, especially in the Philadelphia region, and the world in which we live. Every household's costs keep rising, and we're no different. We make sure your dollars in any amount go a long way toward continuing our mission to inform, form in the Catholic faith and inspire the thousands of readers who visit every month. Here is how you can help:
- A $100 gift allows us to present award-winning photos of Catholic life in our neighborhoods.
- A $50 gift enables us to cover a news event in a local parish, school or Catholic institution.
- A $20 gift lets us obtain solid faith formation resources that can deepen your spirituality and knowledge of the faith.
- A small, automated monthly donation means you can support us continually and easily.
Please join in the church's vital mission of communications by offering a gift in whatever amount that you can -- a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more, or a monthly donation. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
