Welcome to St. Philip Catholic Church

Vote: Our Sacred Duty

Bishop Michael F. Burbidge and Richmond Bishop Barry Knestout Pre-election Letter

Election Day is November 2, and early voting has already begun. Virginia voters will elect a governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and all 100 members of the Virginia House of Delegates. Much is at stake, and it is our sacred duty to form our consciences and vote. 

May we join with Catholics across the commonwealth in voting for leaders committed to policy positions that uphold the truth reflected in our Catholic beliefs, most notably the protection of all human life, especially those in greatest need. We begin this process with prayer and reflection, standing upon the fundamental teachings of our Catholic Faith.

Use the hashtag #CatholicsVote in your social media posts this election season. Please pray before you vote on November 2.
