Our Founder’s Advice to Voters

Just prior to the election in November of 1884, our founder, the Venerable Servant of God Father Michael McGivney gave his congregation some important advice about the upcoming election. He said:

"In casting your ballots, you should look well to the responsibilities under which every citizen of this free government is placed. Let not the soft or alluring words of tricky politicians, or the seductive dollar turn you a hair's breadth from your lawful path. Vote not as other men dictate, but rather like men with the interest of your country at heart. Vote according to the dictates of your own consciences." -- The Morning News, Nov. 3, 1884
