The Diocese of Orlando is joining dioceses around the country to pray in thanksgiving for our heritage of religious freedom, reflect on attempts to limit this most cherished liberty and have the courage to take positive action.

Our faith is not a private matter.  The Church plays a role in the promotion and attainment of justice and protection of the common good.  We are called to be steadfast witnesses to the love of Christ even in the face of controversy and great debate. 

We are concerned by the Health and Human Services (HHS) Mandate because it mandates health care coverage which does not uphold the teachings of life and goes against what we believe is unacceptable.  Requiring that Catholic hospitals, universities, and institutions – which do uphold these teachings of life – must now provide drugs to assist with the destruction of life, also diminishes our ability to practice our faith. The payment of our insurance premiums will also subsidize abortion inducing drugs, even though we do not believe in this culture of death. 

The bishops of the U.S. have rejected this HHS mandate, insisting that it forces the faithful to pay for “services” which violate our religious convictions.
