Parish Resources for Elections

Help parishioners participate in elections with these resources: political responsibility guidelines, parish toolkit, graphics, material on forming consciences, and the Civilize It! initiative. Many are provided in English and Spanish. 

(The General Election is Nov. 8)

Political Responsibility Guidelines for Parishes

Parishes are encouraged to share the Church's teachings on human life, human rights, and justice and peace, but may not participate in partisan activity.

Voter guides: Many organizations seek to distribute voter or election guides or candidate scorecards through parishes, parish organizations or schools. The Maryland Catholic Conference candidate surveys are the only the voter guides approved by our Maryland bishops. Please do not use outside materials.
