Political Process Guidelines

In the period of time leading up to major elections, many questions arise about the education of our parishioners and our elementary and secondary students regarding the political process in both religious and civic dimensions. The Archdiocese of St. Louis is providing this guide to our parishes, schools, and agencies in order to engage leadership in local discussion, decision-making, and policy formation.

This guide intends to inform priests, deacons, parishioners, agency administrators and staffs, educational administrators, faculties, and students as to the acceptable standards of Catholic Church involvement in the political process.
