Rally for Religious Freedom, Friday, June 8, noon, San Francisco.
Stand up for our religious freedom by pushing back against the new mandate from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) which requires that all employers provide free contraceptives, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs through their health plans, even in violation of their consciences. Rallies will be held nationwide. Our nearest rally is at the HHS building, 90 Seventh Street, San Francisco. Bishop Cordileone supports this rally. For more information: http://standupforreligiousfreedom.com
Bishop Cordileone Calls All Catholic Voters to Write Congress, US President.
“I therefore call on all of you, our good people in the Diocese of Oakland, to write to your congressional representatives and urge them to pass legislation to reverse this [HHS] mandate. I also ask you to contact President Obama and encourage him to continue to be open to putting into place robust protections of religious liberty for faith-based health, educational and social service organizations. The contact information to do this may be found on the Diocese home page at www.oakdiocese.org
Heaven and Earth are Full of Your Glory.
Roman Catholic bishops and the United Methodist church recently issued a joint statement on the Eucharist and Ecology: “We call both Methodists and Catholics to practice stewardship of creation … Eucharistic renewal and environmental responsibility are intrinsically linked … A Christian response to the ecological crisis … is a sense of wonder before God’s gift of creation.” Read more at: http://tinyurl.com/FullofYourGlory

Thus says the Lord of hosts: Render true judgment, and show kindness and compassion toward each other. Do not oppress the widow or the orphan, the alien or the poor; do not plot evil against one another in your hearts. Zechariah 7:9-10
