What inspired Catholics at the Capitol?


The Church sees politics as a form of civic friendship. At a time when polarization and partisanship are pulling us apart, the world needs the Church more than ever to renew public life by building bridges of friendship, especially with lawmakers. Pope Francis once said, “a good Catholic meddles in politics, offering the best of himself, so that those who govern can govern.” We created Catholics at the Capitol to help Catholics learn how “meddling” in politics can be an exercise of our faith and to provide an opportunity for Catholics from across the state to build relationships with their representatives and with one another.
