European Bishops issue statement on upcoming EU elections


On March 21st the Catholic Bishops of Europe published a Statement in view of the upcoming European elections. In this text, they reaffirm their support for the European project. They also encourage all citizens of the European Union to go to the polling booths on the 22nd and 25th May, and to start engaging, during the run-up to the election, in constructive dialogue with their MEP’s and those who are candidates for seats.

At the same time, COMECE invites the Bishops’ conferences in the EU, to adopt this text, either by using it as an Election Statement as such or as an inspiration for their own election statements.
