Catholic Social Advocacy
Catholic Social Advocacy is about promoting life, justice and peace during the course of the Legislative session. The bishop of the Diocese of Fort Worth and fellow Catholic bishops in Texas have developed legislative priorities and will advocate the concerns of the Catholic Church in Texas to state leaders and members of the Legislature during the course of the legislative session. Every faithful member of the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth can help the bishop and the other Texas Catholic bishops.
These bulletin inserts explain how you can help.
Texas Bishops Advocacy
The Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops (TCCB) encourages and fosters cooperation and communication among the dioceses and the ministries of the Catholic Church of Texas, as well as serving as the public policy arm of the Conference's board of directors, the bishops of Texas, before the Texas Legislature, state agencies and the Texas delegation in Congress. The Fort Worth Catholic Diocese is a member of the Texas Catholic Conference board.
The public policy issues addressed by the TCCB include the institutional concerns of the Catholic Church as well as issues related to Catholic moral and social teachings.
The Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops coordinates the activities of the 15 Texas Catholic dioceses and a variety of Catholic organizations in Texas before the Texas Legislature. Through its website, the TCCB reviews all bills filed by legislators, provides an analysis of each bill, and indicates whether the bill is being supported or opposed, based on the legislative agenda set by the bishops in their capacity as TCCB board members.
