USCCB Launches Civility Initiative

Civility: it's likely the most important tenet needed in the political sphere, and in everyday life. It's also likely the least heeded. In the era of modern politics, harsh words and actions are seen more often than kindness and respect. In response to this, ahead of the 2020 election the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is launching a year-long initiative that invites Catholics to model civility, love for neighbor, and respectful dialogue. Civilize It: Dignity Beyond the Debate will ask Catholics to pledge civility, clarity, and compassion in their families, communities, and parishes, and call on others to do the same.  

Read more about this initiative that was launched by the USCCB this week to learn more about how you can follow along and incorporate civility into your daily actions.
