How should I vote?

On Tuesday September 29, from 2-3 p.m., the Catholic Climate Covenant will host a webinar with the interesting title, “I’m Catholic, How Should I Discern? Conscience, Discernment, and Voting as an Act of Love."  

The session is intended to help Catholics understand the Church’s teaching on conscience and discernment as it relates to their vote ahead of the November election. Speakers will discuss not only the importance of particular issues when discerning, but also candidate character and moral values.  

Presenters include:

  • Daniel R. DiLeo, PhD, Catholic moral theologian and director of Creighton University’s Justice and Peace Studies Program 
  • Jill Rauh, director of Education and Outreach in the Department of Justice, Peace, and Human Development at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops 
  • Brenna Davis, director of Education for Justice and Environmental Initiatives at the Ignatian Solidarity Network.
