We Catholics within the DC area have been making known to the chancery and others our concern and dismay regarding questionable occurrences within the Archdiocese. To date, our activities include:
Picketing the appearance of John Sweeney at the February 2003 Catholic Charities Gala. Mr. Sweeney is the president of the AFL-CIO, which has named as a goal the inclusion of contraception coverage in group health plans. Moreover, the AFL-CIO supports pro-abortion candidates to office.
Launching a telephone, fax and email campaign to
successfully effect the “disinvitation” of
pro-abortion Congresswoman Connie Morella as a speaker at St Mary’s in
Pickets of a girls’ Catholic high school to protest the selection of pro-abortion women as commencement speakers (Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and Sandra Day O’Connor).
Successful phone/email campaign to have pro-abortion politicians (Chris Van Hollen, US Congressman and Mike Miller, MD Senator) disinvited as speakers at local Catholic Businessmen’s Network breakfasts (Montgomery and Prince George’s counties).
As situations such as these present themselves, we will speak out for the Magisterium. If you’d like to be a part of our efforts (and we hope so!), please complete the information request below.
