Prop 1 Resources for Priests and Deacons

Archbishop Cordileone is urging opposition to Proposition 1, which will be decided by voters on November 8, 2022. His recent letter to the faithful emphasized, “The California bishops have made defeating Prop 1 our number one priority for this year, and we ask every Catholic in the state to become educated on this dangerous bill, encourage others to oppose it, and support the ‘No on Prop 1 Campaign’ with your prayer, fasting and financial contributions.” The pdf version of the letter is available below.

Priests and deacons are invited to spread the word on this issue among their parishioners. To help guide this effort, they are invited to a homiletics webinar on September 8 at 10:30 am, hosted by the California Catholic Conference.

Homily helps and liturgical resources are available on this page. Additional resources for clergy are available on this page, which will be updated in the coming months.

Below you will find resources that can be used to support the No On Prop 1 effort. If you have any questions or need additional resources, please visit our website or contact [email protected].
