While Biden would be the second Catholic president if elected, Burch said that "Catholics are less focused on Joe Biden's claims about his personal faith, and instead on what his policies would do to the culture, and their freedom to live out their own beliefs."
The group plans to launch a digital advertising campaign, canvass parish neighborhoods, and launch tv ads in swing states, beginning this week in Pennsylvania and Michigan.
CatholicVote is organized as a lobbying organization and both a related political action committee and 501(c)(3) non-profit. In June, Burch told CNA the group aims "to achieve historic turnout among Catholics in the upcoming November election."
In particular, Burch told CNA this summer, the group is "focused on turning out every active (practicing) Catholic voter."
CatholicVote says it is non-partisan and aims to encourage voter registration and voting among practicing Catholics.
"These voters, according to polling, are likely to vote for pro-life candidates, which no doubt frustrates some so-called progressives," Burch added.
Still, the group's own platform is not completely aligned with either major party platform.
On its website, a section entitled "What We Believe" notes the importance of "a culture that celebrates life," says that "marriage is between one man and one woman," notes that "we are all called to help the poor," calls for environmental stewardship, and adds that "the death penalty is an unnecessary legal penalty in the developed world."
The group, however, in Facebook and web posts, regularly promotes decisions or policies of President Donald Trump and other Republican lawmakers, and regularly criticizes Democratic lawmakers.
CatholicVote has run social media posts and spoken in favor of Democratic Congressman Dan Lipinski, regarded as one of the last pro-life Democrats in Congress, who was defeated in a recent primary race and will lose his Congressional seat in January.
And while the group has sometimes been characterized as a Trump campaign operation, Burch said that's not accurate.

In a 2016 column, Burch explained that "CatholicVote members have been clear: secure as many commitments from Trump as possible" on issues that matter to Catholics.
"If he has any hope of getting elected, he needs our votes, and we must work constructively in a very imperfect situation to advance our ideals as best as we can," he added.
On Tuesday, Burch said the group aimed to point to issues of importance to Catholic voters in November's election.
"The teachings of the Catholic Church are open to all people of good will. Our aim is simply to carefully and attentively present the facts, so that every voter might cast a vote, with an informed conscience, based on the truth."
