Take Action on AB 154 and AB 980!
Assembly Bill (AB) 154 and AB 980 are two California abortion-expanding
bills opposed by Bishop Soto and all of the California Bishops.
AB 154 would allow nurses, physician assistants and midwives (not welltrained
physicians) to perform first trimester abortions.
AB 980 would override the California Building Code requirements in favor
of abortion facilities.
Please call and ask each of these Senators who represent districts in
the Sacramento Diocese to vote No
on AB 154 and AB 980:

We have entered
into the Year of Faith, initiated by the Holy Father, Pope Benedict
XVI, on the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council. It will
end on the feast of Christ the King in 2013. Faith is more than creed.
Faith is more than the Scriptures. Faith is more than a moral life.
Faith is more than the Catholic Church's rich heritage of sacramental
rituals. Faith includes these but is so much more.
The creed, Scripture, our moral tradition and the sacraments all are
charged with a living faith that stands with confidence in the wonder
of God revealed by our Lord Jesus Christ. Faith trusts in the mystery
of divine love revealed by the crucified Lord. Faith is reliance that
transcends ourselves and confides completely in the one who says, "Take
courage, it is I; do not be afraid." (Mt. 14:27) Faith is where
curiosity becomes religious desire to know and love the one in whom
all our curiosity will find its true satisfaction and peace

Bishops on Health Care
do they say?
PLEASE READ INSERT:
Catholic Church and Rights of Conscience
10, the Catholic bishops of the United States called for a renewed effort
to change the HHS imposed mandate that violates conscience rights &
religious liberty. The Administration's accommodation still
forces objecting organizations and individuals to pay for services
that violate their religious convictions.
unjust rule has not been changed, but rather finalized.
promised some kind of accommodation, but only after
accommodation even at its best would still
force our institutions to violate their beliefs.
no exemption for objecting insurers, secular employers, for-profit
religious employers, or individuals.
Parish website provides links to resource and background information
from the Diocese of Sacramento, the USCCB, homilies, and videos to aid
