Abstract
The project purpose was to determine the value a congregation placed on political voting and whether it impacted their sense of moral responsibility and community participation. The project span was from May 2006 - December 2006. The methodology included survey questions, interviews and a memoir. The findings revealed that the participants recognized a theological significance in voting. The voter mobilization effort influenced the participants' passion for the community embracing a better quality of life through the power of the vote. The conclusion was that the parishioners view voting as a moral obligation and an effective tool for community transformation.
