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.

"While very grateful for the wonderful work of Catholic Charities, our religious orders, our parishes and people in showing compassion to our street people, I confess we can do more, and will, hopefully in partnership with our state and city leaders. We must. We are Americans. We are New Yorkers. We are believers." --Timothy Cardinal Dolan
