Bishop Malooly calls Catholics to active participation in political process, to find those ‘in keeping with our values and the teachings of our Church’:
It is incumbent on each of us to research the candidates for national, statewide, and local offices, to see if their stance on issues is in keeping with our values and the teachings of our Church. Do they, in word and policy, uphold the dignity of every human person? Do they support the restriction and ultimately the end of the destruction of unborn children through abortion? Do they strongly oppose euthanasia? Do they support religious freedom in all matters, especially healthcare?Source: The Dialog, 8 September 2020
One of the key activities we will be taking part in is the 40 Days for Life campaign, from September 23rd – November 1st. The visible centerpiece of each local 40 Days for Life is a focused, 40-day, non-stop, round-the-clock prayer vigil outside a single Planned Parenthood center or other abortion facility. We will be participating in the prayer vigil outside the Planned Parenthood center in Dover, on 805 S. Governors Ave.
