As the 2020 Presidential Election approaches, Campus Ministry invites you to discern the often complex issues facing our nation. Topics like the preferential option for the poor, the dignity of the human person, and the care of our common home are all pressing matters. How do we as people of faith respond? Campus Ministry will share a series of videos in collaboration with the Center for Social Concerns, continue to offer Need To Talk as a place to have honest and confidential conversations, gather for prayer, and share election-related resources on a newly-created section of our website.
How you vote on Nov. 3 is your personal choice, which is why you are invited to engage your mind and heart, through information, reflection, and prayer, as you prepare to vote in this election.
FORMING CONSCIENCES FOR FAITHFUL CITIZENSHIP
Campus Ministry and the Center for Social Concerns want to highlight the call by the U.S. Bishops during this election season to form our consciences for faithful citizenship. Over the next three weeks, we will highlight a principle of Catholic Social Teaching through a short video to help in discerning the various choices that lie ahead. In this week’s video, Fr. Pete McCormick, C.S.C., Director of Campus Ministry, and Bill Purcell, Acting Executive Director of the Center for Social Concerns, reflect on the principle of human dignity. Watch here.
