The Election


In an open letter to Catholics issued by the Bishops of England And Wales, we are encouraged to play an active part in the election.

Your vote for is a matter of conscience, but they urge us to approach the Election with a positive determination and to consider carefully all that is at stake.

The letter reminds us of key principles to guide our thinking in the run-up to the election, taken from Pope Francis’ 'Evangelii Gaudium'.
