A Unified Voice for All New York State Catholics
The New York State Catholic Conference represents the Bishops of the state in working with government to shape laws and policies that pursue social justice, respect for life and the common good. We provide a unified voice for the eight dioceses of the state to speak on such issues as education, marriage, health care, poverty, abortion, euthanasia, social services, criminal justice and the environment. We apply the principles of Catholic social teaching to critical issues of the day and encourage citizen involvement in the legislative process.
"They'll say to me, 'Why are you and the Church so pro-immigrant?' And I say, 'Because I believe in the Bible, which teaches to love and welcome the immigrant. And because, darn it, I'm an American.' So it's part of my religious upbringing and it's part of my proud American patriotism that I have an obligation to welcome, embrace, defend and protect the immigrant." -- Timothy Cardinal Dolan
