Who We Are
As liaison for the Roman Catholic Bishops of Montana with state and federal government, the Conference seeks to advocate for the weak and vulnerable and act as a catalyst for the transformation of society. Our advocacy centers around the life and social justice issues outlined in this website.
We help shape public policy that protects the sanctity and dignity of all human life, nurtures the family, advocates for the poor, the sick and vulnerable and promotes the common good.
MCC informs and advises the Bishops on issues, is involved in voter education, presenting Catholic Social Teaching in the parishes, promoting social justice, supporting and providing resources for pro-life activities throughout the state, informing and advising parishes on social justice matters, collaborating with other social justice organizations, and coordinating inter-diocesan social justice events.
The Montana Catholic Conference, through the Montana Catholic Bishop’s, is proud to bring to you the Affirming The Culture of Life Conference.
How To Help
“In the Catholic tradition, responsible citizenship is a virtue; participation in the political process is a moral obligation.” – USCCB Statement “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship”
Promoting life and human dignity in the State of Montana is very rewarding both personally and for those who benefit from our work. We are called by the Church to care for the poor, the marginalized, and the vulnerable.
The Montana Catholic Conference would be honored to have your assistance in acheiving its goals. Not everyone can dedicate 40+ hours a week to specifically promoting life and justice in the public arena. We understand that you have jobs and families and many other issues in your lives that take considerable time and energy. When numerous individuals are able to provide limited support through their time, energy or fiscal means, MCC is able to advocate, teach, and organize for those in need.
Discuss with your family and pray about what you can offer. Even if your contributions are limited, you can help make a difference. Here are a few of the many ways you can help:
- Learn About Catholic Social Teaching
- Become informed about issues related to human life and dignity
- Learn about Federal, State, and local government
- Volunteer your time at one of the many Catholic charities or associated organizations
- Join the leadership for the Affirming The Culture of Life Conference
- Write letters to the editor
- Write letters to your lawmakers
- Make a donation. No amount is too small.
- Become a sponsor of the Affirming the Culture of Life Conference
- Pray, pray and pray!
