Faithful Citizenship Institute

Purpose

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

Vision

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.

Mission

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.
