Faithful Citizenship Institute

FCI empowers Catholic policy leaders with the knowledge, tools, and resources to effectively implement Catholic moral teachings. Catholic Social Teaching serves as a crucial guide in the development, debate, and enactment of effective public policy, both in Washington, D.C. and state capitols across America.


The Faithful Citizenship Institute (FCI) inspires Catholic policy makers to prioritize faith over politics. 


The Faithful Citizenship Institute, drawing inspiration from Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship: A Call to Political Responsibility, will elevate political discourse and shape policy solutions rooted in the foundational principles of Catholic Social Teaching.


Bring the beauty and wisdom of Catholic Social Teaching to capitols around the United States by equipping policy leaders with the knowledge and resources to infuse these foundational principles into policy discourse and solutions.
