Since January there has been much attention to our efforts to address the very troubling Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate which requires almost all private health plans to cover contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs.
The Conference has been developing a series of bulletin inserts to address a wide range of issues, from our concerns over religious liberty to the Church’s teaching on sexuality and openness to new human life.
In mid-September the fourth installment of nationwide bulletin inserts was released, which is recommended for parish distribution throughout October.
The following bulletin insert resources are attached:
- Memo on the bulletin insert to diocesan leaders providing more details
- Color version in English and Spanish
- Black & white version in English and Spanish
The bulletin insert provides parishioners with practical things they can do to stand up for religious freedom, including particular suggestions for prayer and action. The insert also links to new prayer resources (noted below and attached) for the month of October.
