"This is the time to speak up".  These are the recent words of Cardinal Wuerl about the mandate of the Obama administration for the Catholic Church to provide health services against Her conscience.   The Cardinal is speaking to us, GW Catholics.  The Church is calling us to step up and make our voices heard. Apparently, the President said to a bishop at some point about this debate, "I hear from you, but I don't hear from your people".  Let the President and members of Congress hear from us.

First, click on today's title to learn more about the issues at hand.  There are many excellent explanations by the US bishops, especially a video by Archbishop Timothy Dolan. 

Second, EACH ONE, REACH ONE!   I am asking each GW Catholic to contact Congress and to reach another GW Catholic to do the same.  It's three easy steps: 

1) Click on the link below to send an email to your Congress representatives and Senators, asking them to vote for the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act.  Simply sign the email, provide your information, and your voice is heard!
Support Respect for Rights of Conscience Act

2) Reach out to another GW Catholic with the link, and ask them to support the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act.   EACH ONE, REACH ONE!

3)  Ask them to reach another GW Catholic with the link and support the RRCA, and to keep the EACH ONE, REACH ONE cycle going!

Also, please sign a petition that will be sent to President Obama.  The petition needs 25,000 signatures by the end of February in order for the President to reconsider his decision.  9,000 more signatures are still needed.  Let the President hear from you!   Here's the link:!/petition/rescind-hhs-dept-mandate-requiring-catholic-employers-provide-contraceptivesabortifacients-their/lBxr7SdP
