Your Eminences/Your Excellencies,
You will find attached, for your information and possible distribution in your dioceses/eparchies, the 2019 Federal Election Guide / Guide des élections fédérales de 2019, prepared by the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace and published in the name of the Permanent Council.
For some years, it has been customary for the Conference, in anticipation of the federal elections, to issue a reflection on key ethical and moral issues that voters, especially Catholics, may want to consider.
The 2019 Guide, provided in PDF, has been formatted for online sharing and includes hyperlinks directing the reader to further resources on various issues important to Catholics.
You are invited to share the Guide with your diocesan/eparchial communications personnel in view of its distribution in parishes.
Sincerely yours in Jesus with Mary,
Rev. Msgr. Frank Leo, Jr.
