The Archdiocese of Detroit follows the legislative priorities of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. We maintain a bank of news, people and current information on various legislative issues with moral impact and work to disseminate this information throughout the archdiocese. Our role is to help parish staff and volunteers prepare appropriate responses to legislation of concern and work to accomplish the goals of the U.S. bishops' conference.
The Michigan Catholic Conference serves as the official voice of the Catholic Church in Michigan on matters of public policy.
