|Bishop to parishes: Religious freedom threatened - Time to act|
The following is a letter from the Most Reverend Richard Lennon, Bishop, Diocese of Cleveland to the Catholic community in the eight county Diocese of Cleveland.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
I write to you concerning a serious matter that will negatively impact the Catholic Church in the United States if it is allowed to take effect as planned by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The proposed action of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services strikes at the fundamental right to religious liberty for all citizens of any faith.
