Together, we’ll discuss how voting is a moral act and opportunity for us to utilize our faith in civic engagement. Bishop McElroy will also emphasize how Catholic Social Teaching can be applied to the core political issues of American society and how they may assist voters in weighing the policy proposals of candidates.
