Diocesan Liturgical Calendar

The next national election is less than a month away. If ever we needed to pray and vote for our leaders and propositions put on the ballot for our consideration--this is the time.

Please consider praying the Novena below, beginning October 31.

Lord God, as the election approaches, we seek to better understand the issues and concerns that confront our city/state/country, and how the Gospel compels us to respond as faithful citizens in our community.

We ask for eyes that are free from blindness so that we might see each other as brothers and sisters, one and equal in dignity, especially those who are victims of abuse and violence, deceit and poverty.

We ask for ears that will hear the cries of children unborn and those abandoned; men and women oppressed because of race or creed, religion or gender.

We ask for minds and hearts that are open to hearing the voice of leaders who will bring us closer to your Kingdom.

We pray for discernment so that we may choose leaders
who hear your Word,
live your love,
and keep in the ways of your truth
as they follow in the steps of Jesus and his Apostles
and guide us to your Kingdom of justice and peace.

We ask this in the name of your Son Jesus Christ and through the power of the Holy Spirit.

U.S. Bishops on Health Care

What do they say?


English       Español

      The Catholic Church and Rights of Conscience

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.

  • The original unjust rule has not been changed, but rather finalized.
  • HHS has promised some kind of “accommodation,” but only after the election.
  • The promised “accommodation”— even at its best — would still force our institutions to violate their beliefs.
  • There's no exemption for objecting insurers, secular employers, for-profit religious employers, or individuals.

St. Isidore Parish website provides links to resource and background information from the Diocese of Sacramento, the USCCB, homilies, and videos to aid Catholics in fulfilling their responsibilities as Faithful Catholic Citizens as Governments challenge the Church's Rights of Conscience.
