My Catholic Life
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.
Timothy Cardinal Dolan discusses plans for Pope Francis' upcoming apostolic journey to the U.S., as well as other issues facing the Archdiocese of New York and the Church in America. (Be sure to watch both video clips in the link below.)

“For an increasing number of families, the pressure to sustain both taxes for public schools and tuition for the education of their own children is unsustainable, and without some assistance from lawmakers, more and more families will be forced to enroll their children in public schools at a far greater cost to taxpayers" -- James Cultrara, director for education, NYS Catholic Conference
