As Christians we have a long tradition of being actively involved in the big issues of our time. From Catherine of Siena to Oscar Romero, the lives of many saints show us that the greater their devotion to the Lord, the deeper their commitment to addressing the social problems of their time.
As people of faith, the forthcoming general election is an opportunity to draw attention to the key issues that matter to us.
A Year of Encounter
CAFOD and SVP are coming together to equip parishes with training and resources to contact candidates on the issues we care about.
The greater the number of parishes contacting local candidates, the stronger the Catholic voice will be in your area.
Let’s not miss this opportunity to put our faith into practice.
Using our Catholic voice: Tell us what your parish is doing
Let us know how you and your parish are engaging with election candidates in your area by completing either of these two short forms.
