The Wisconsin Catholic Conference (WCC) was founded in 1969 by the bishops of Wisconsin. The Conference seeks to fulfill the vision of the Second Vatican Council, which called upon the Church to be more involved in the world.
With the message of the Gospel and the social teachings of the Church as its foundation, the WCC offers a specifically Catholic contribution to state and federal public policy debates. The Conference also offers a statewide response to issues common to its five dioceses.
It achieves this in several ways:
- Serves as an advocate on matters related to the interests and values of the Church;
- Provides decision makers with studied positions on social and moral issues;
- Offers a forum for diocesan personnel to meet, exchange information, deliberate and recommend policies or actions; and
- Formulates and publishes opinions and positions on legislation and public policy.
