This week the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales have launched a set of informative resources to help Catholics think about their election choices, prior to the General Election. The resources cover pro-Life issues as well as the criminal justice system, education, poverty, the environment, refugees and migrants.

The Bishops say: “We are not merely the passive recipients of politics but active citizens. An election is the best time for us as Christians to speak out, to get involved, and to lead.”

The resources include suggested questions for candidates, links for those want to go deeper, and actions that can make a difference. Find more here:
