2.1.8 Michigan Catholic Conference Public Policy

(From time to time, the diocesan bishops of the Province of Detroit issue or authorize important statements or guidelines on public policy and social issues through the Michigan Catholic Conference. The Public Policy division serves as the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in Michigan. These statements are usually communicated widely but all clergy and other personnel are advised to review them periodically. A brief and merely illustrative list would include: Political and Electoral

Guidelines for Catholic Institutions, Guidelines for End of Life Decisions: Patient, Physician, and Family, Living and Dying According to the Voice of Faith: A Pastoral Letter to the Catholics of the State of Michigan; and, Understanding the Relationship Between Stem Cell Research and Catholic Teaching.

These and their titles are revised from time to time.

These are available from the Michigan Catholic Conference, 510 South Capitol Avenue, Lansing, MI 48933, phone: (800) 395-5565. Fax: (517) 372-3940. https://www.micatholic.org.
