The California Catholic Conference (CCC)

is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in California.  We advocate with policy makers and the public to advance the Catholic vision of human life and dignity, the good society, and concern for those who are poor and vulnerable.  We educate Catholics and the general public.  We empower Catholics to put their faith into action consistent with Catholic teaching.

Marriage & Family

Marriage has never been as challenged as it is today. Fewer people are “tying the knot,” family structures are changing and children are growing up without fathers in the home or slipping into poverty. Yet the Catholic Church has good news about marriage and many ways to help couples as they share a life together as husband and wife.
