Attached is some updated information for dissemination: an Immediate Release as well as a flyer for an upcoming DACA renewal workshop.
If your high school son or daughter attends public high school we have just what they need to continue their faith formation and/or prepare for their Confirmation year. It is Holy Family’s policy that all students preparing for a sacrament must have attended either Catholic school or CFF religious education classes for a full year prior to making the sacrament. Also, Confirmation classes are NOT the same as CFF classes so it is highly encouraged that the students attend both and continue throughout high school and beyond. Our faith journey is lifelong and so, too, should be our formation. Please contact Theresa Shaw at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 944-8283 x2 for more information.

Three U.S. prelates reflect on the meaning of the pallium.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has released its score on the Senate health care bill. The score could impact how the Senate votes on the Republican plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. As he is analyzing the full report and expects to release futher comment, Bishop Frank Dewane of Venice, Chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Domestic Justice and Humane Development Committee, has issued the following initial statement:
“The Congressional Budget Office released a report on the ‘discussion draft’ of the Senate health care proposal, indicating that millions of people could lose their health insurance over time. This moment cannot pass without comment. As the USCCB has consistently said, the loss of affordable access for millions of people is simply unacceptable. These are real families who need and deserve health care. We pray that the Senate will work in an open and unified way to keep the good aspects of current health care proposals, to add missing elements where needed, and to not place our sisters and brothers who struggle every day into so great a peril on so basic a right.

What is the Fortnight for Freedom?
Each year dioceses around the country arrange special events to highlight the importance of defending religious freedom. The Fortnight for Freedom is from June 21—the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More—to July 4, Independence Day.
How to Talk about Religious Freedom
In this time of increasing polarization in our culture, we can contribute to a better understanding of religious freedom in a way that respects all people.
This short guide aims help Christians speak with friends and neighbors about religious freedom and work to clear up misconceptions about it.
Pray, Reflect, Act
We are called to follow Christ as missionary disciples by seeking the truth, serving others, and living our faith in all that we do. Let us take a few moments each day from June 21 – July 4 to pray, reflect, and take action on religious liberty, both here in this country and abroad.
Check our Facebook page for daily reflections during the Fortnight for Freedom.
