Nebraska Catholic Conference

The Church has a proper role in the political order and a responsibility to contribute to the public debate on issues having significant moral dimensions. This role and this responsibility flow from a Gospel mandate, from the Church's moral and social teaching and from Her concern for the common good.

Pro Life 

The teaching of the Catholic Church on the intrinsic dignity of human life and on our own individual and societal duty to respect human life remains clear and unequivocal. For all who believe and adhere to this teaching, there is an unquestionable responsibility to generate greater respect for human life than currently exists. Within a current situation of permissive abortion, that responsibility is truly significant

Education  

All persons are entitled to educational opportunities that can help them achieve their fullest potential.  The Nebraska Catholic Conference firmly acknowledges and endorses the critical role of parents in the education of their children.  NCC is an advocate for public policies which promote quality education and parental choice, including the choice of religiously-based schools.
