Faithful Citizenship

Catholics have a responsibility as faithful citizens to vote.  For help forming your conscience in preparartion for voting, the United States Conference of Bishops has provided their guide on  Faithful Citizenship which can be accessed here.

The Illinois Right to Life Action group has complied a pro-life voter guide which can be found here.

Rev. Francis Hoffman (Fr. Rocky), Executive Direction/CEO of Relevant Radio, offers an e-book that will help you learn how to form your conscience around truth, beauty, goodness, and Catholic teaching, and then use that well-formed conscience in all areas of your life — making moral choices, voting, raising your family, and evangelizing your coworkers.  Find the pdf here.


Morning Adoration may end at 10:30am if a funeral is scheduled for that day.
