A Forward from Catholics in Alliance

In one hour, Donald John Trump will be inaugurated the 45th President of the United States.

Next week, we will be at a meeting with the new President at the White House, and we want to deliver a letter to him from the Catholic community.

In the letter, we promise the President that we will pray for him, but that in the spirit of St. Thomas More, we will challenge him to live up to the highest demands of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We tell him we'll fight for a nation where the poor are blessed, the last are first, and strangers are welcomed.

Please sign onto to our letter, and forward it to friends and family who want to do the same.
We're willing to encounter, engage, and befriend anyone to make Pope Francis's dream for the United States a lived reality: "let this be a place where everyone is welcomed, loved, and forgiven."
Let's challenge President Trump to do the same.

Also, your support is crucial to our work in the first days of Donald Trump's presidency. Will you chip in and invest in our efforts today?

Thank you for all you do.
