The Diocese of Manchester's Public Policy Office is responsible for identifying issues of public policy affecting the citizens of New Hampshire in light of Catholic social teaching, providing information and testimony to elected officials, and providing resources for the education of the Catholic community on its social and political responsibilities. The office is assisted by the members of the Diocesan Public Policy Commission who make recommendations for the bishop's consideration regarding state and federal legislation and ways to foster public understanding of the Church's teaching on social issues.
