Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship

The Web site Faithful Citizenship, a production of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, aims at providing resources and information to help develop political responsibility at all levels of society. It contains a large assortment of material under the following headings: All Catholics; Parish and School Leaders; Diocesan and Community Leaders; and Young Catholics.

Of particular interest to teachers and catechists is a section called “Ideas for Religious Educators” that provides some suggestions for activities with children, youth and adults as well as information on pertinent publications of the USCC. has also produced a handy Catholic Update printable pamphlet summarizing the U.S. bishops' statement to Catholics about forming their faith properly before making political decisions.
