As Catholics, we believe that life is a gift from God that must be cherished and protected. Our faith obliges us to work to defend life both privately and publicly.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Pro-Life Activities has begun a massive postcard campaign to urge Congress to retain laws against federal funding and promotion of abortion, and to oppose any bill that includes provisions contained in FOCA.
The Bishops of New Jersey are urging all Catholic peoples to join in informing our elected representatives in Washington to retain the pro-life laws and policies now in place, and to oppose any effort to pass the provisions contained in the “FOCA Agenda.” The postcards are located at the end of each pew. Please complete them and return them in the collection box. The parish will arrange to mail them to Washington this week.
Today, we have the opportunity to make not only the strongest possible statement about the Sanctity of life, but also to demonstrate our strength as people of faith and faithful citizens. Help us make this campaign to secure true progress in building a Culture of Life in our nation a success.
