Introducing Catholics for the Common Good

A New Catholic Action

“As lay men and women … you are being called by Christ to sanctify the world and to transform it.”
Pope John Paul II
Ecclesia in America

Catholics for the Common Good is a new Catholic Action responding to the call of the Pope John Paul II for the new evangelization and the U.S. Bishops for faithful citizenship.

Since its founding in early 2003, members of Catholics for the Common Good (CCG) have demonstrated that, working together, they can create a voice that is heard in their communities and across the country.

It is a voice that gives hope and encourages others to join the chorus for a conversion of culture.

It is a voice that seeks justice, respect and dignity for every human person at every stage and condition of life: the weak, the poor, the sick, the unborn, the young and the elderly.

It is a voice that supports and protects marriage and the family, the foundation of our society and a source of hope for the future. As the first church, the first school and the first hospital for our youngest and most vulnerable, the family must be protected and supported by the community without interference.

We are therefore pro-life, pro-family, pro-freedom and pro-poor.

We strive for a better understanding of the social teachings of the Catholic Church so that we have better answers for our children when they bring questions home from school and to develop the right heart to advocate truths and public policies with faith and charity. It was with this in mind that a group of our members conceived of and founded the Walk for Life, West Coast to help bring a message with love and caring, to inform women of the emotional and physical health consequences of abortion.
