Voting for the Common Good

Bishop Peter A. Libasci developed a document, “Voting for the Common Good,” to assist Catholics and others in understanding the nature of conscience and the moral obligation to vote. The guide outlines Catholic social teaching on some of today’s pressing issues and answers frequently-asked questions. Click below to read “Voting for the Common Good” and to review additional resources.

Mass for America at Saint Joseph Cathedral, Manchester

All are welcome to Saint Joseph Cathedral in Manchester on November 7th at 6:30 p.m. for a Mass for our Nation to ask God to guide us all not only on Election Day but on the days that will follow. The Mass will not be a time to pray for one candidate or another, nor to cheer on one party on another. Instead, the Divine Liturgy will be an opportunity for all to gather before almighty God and ask him to guide us as we go forward to bring healing and peace to our hearts and to restore hope in all things.

Are you seeking a space for prayerful reflection?

The doors of the Cathedral are open today for those who may be seeking a space for prayerful reflection, and the doors will be open again tomorrow during voting hours (6 a.m. to 7 p.m.).

Saint Joseph Cathedral is located at 145 Lowell Street in Manchester (at the corner of Pine and Lowell Streets).
