Representing the Dioceses of Nashville, Memphis, and Knoxville
The bishops in State of Tennessee join other faith leaders in signing a letter and supporting a peaceful action to address gun violence.
We vote because we are citizens. But we vote conscientiously because we are people of faith. Our consciences are formed through studying Scripture and the teachings of the Church, examination of the facts, and prayerful reflection.
Spirituality and politics are distinct, but they are not separable. Major issues have moral dimensions and significant public consequences.
What does the Tennessee Catholic Conference do?
We present, with one voice, the Church’s position on public policies affecting the common good of all Tennessee citizens to all branches of state government.
We give witness to Gospel values in public affairs and government.
We engage and inform the Catholic Community on crucial social issues.
We encourage and facilitate participation in the Legislative process.
We do this because we want you to be an advocate for crucial social issues. Together, we will make a difference.
