About Us

The Colorado Catholic Conference is the united voice of the Catholic bishops of Colorado in public policy.  Basing its mission on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as expressed in Catholic social teaching and the consistent life ethic, the Conference acts cooperatively to ensure a dignified and productive life for all Coloradans and provides opportunities for Catholics in Colorado to carry out their responsibility to participate in political life.

The Conference is characterized by the 3-pronged approach of education, advocacy and the development of lay leadership regarding public policy issues.

The Conference works with stakeholders to promote the common good in education, poverty, family life, abortion, assisted suicide and euthanasia, social services, conscience protection, health care, criminal justice, and religious liberty. Through advocacy and service, the Colorado Catholic Conference serves its Gospel-mandated mission of justice with a dedication to integrity and excellence.

One of the most important functions of the Colorado Catholic Conference is its engagement with the Colorado state legislature and government relations on the state and federal levels.
