General Election

The Bishops of England and Wales are encouraging all catholics to play an active part in the General Election.

While voting for any particular party is a matter of conscience, the bishops encourage people to use their vote at this pivotal time for our nations, as we prepare to leave the EU.

When using their vote, people are encouraged to consider where their candidate and party stands on issues including refugees and asylum seekers, leaving the EU, protecting life, religious freedom and prison reform
