The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops announced a "National Catholic Call-In Day to Protect Dreamers" Feb. 26. The prelates urged Catholics, as a Lenten Action, to contact their senators and representatives urging them to vote for a bipartisan measure to preserve DACA.
"We are blessed because the Lord founded the Church and is calling you to be part of it. We embrace you and thank God for calling you,” said Bishop of Allentown Alfred Schlert to 96 catechumens during the Rite of Election.
“As we celebrate the World Day of the Sick, everywhere throughout the Catholic world we are reflecting on the great Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick and the consolation the sacrament can bring,” said Bishop Schlert.
Father Frederick Riegler presented “Protecting the Pope: What We Knew Then, What We Know Now” as featured speaker of Theology on Tap Feb. 12 at Bar Louie in the Promenade Shops, Center Valley.
“God loves us and sees us as his children, not as the mistakes we make,” speaker Matt Fradd told the 140 men attending the evening presentation in the University Center.
