Advocacy is one of the four pillars of Catholic life and it is incumbent upon each of us to stay informed on current issues and to advocate for actions that support our Catholic faith and lifestyle. By definition, advocacy is the pursuit of influencing outcomes — including public-policy and resource allocations, as well as decisions within political, economic, and cultural environs. We hope that you will use this section as a resource to keep yourself informed on the issues, but also to be an advocate through actions.
