Clothing Donations Needed fo SVdP

Posted by
St. Vincent De Paul is experiencing growing demand for clothing. They have provided St. Luke with a donation bin to provide clothes and shoes to the poor and homeless. Unlike First Sunday Sharing, donations are for men, women and children. This bin (pictured) has been placed on the Illinois Street side of the church near the entrance to the Kindergarten and will be periodically serviced by our SVdP Conference members. The bin will become a semi-permanent structure at St. Luke, as the demand for clothes and shoes keeps growing. Help St. Vincent DePaul Help the Poor St. Vincent DePaul is expanding its clothing donation center in order to keep up with the demand. All types and seasons of clothing and shoes are needed now. Please consider donations of clothing (new and gently used) and bring them to St. Luke to place them in the bin. Thank you!

Conscience Protection

Posted by
  Today we pass along an important Action Alert from Human Life Action (HLA); it follows:

The Conscience Protection Act of 2017 was recently introduced in both the House and the Senate. This legislation is identical to the bill of the same name passed in the House last July. However, as you know, last year’s bill was never enacted into law. Therefore, with a new Congress in session, we are beginning anew to advocate for conscience protection for those who choose not to participate in abortion.  We are hopeful that with a change in the White House our efforts will meet with success this year.

Cardinal Dolan and Archbishop Lori have written to the members of Congress to urge them to enact this much-needed, common-sense, legislation which will address the deficiencies that block the effective enforcement of federal laws designed to protect the conscience rights of those who provide health care and health care coverage.

The full text of the alert is found here on our website. The alert is also available in Spanish here. We have refined the suggested message so that those who have already cosponsored the bill will get a slightly different message from members who have not yet signed on. The alert requires senders to input their address as the first step so that the appropriate message is selected for each member.

Thank you.

Support House Bill 1004

Posted by

 

HB 1004 would expand early education matching grants, and expand the pre-k pilot program to 10 counties, up from the original five counties. HB 1004 also allows for a grant or pilot recipient to also receive a Choice Scholarship for kindergarten the following year if the family meets the Choice Scholarship guidelines.

If a family enrolls in a school's pre-k program with the help of a pre-k pilot scholarship, that student should not have to change schools for kindergarten in order to access a Choice Scholarship in first grade.

HB 1004 will be heard on the House Floor this week and has many amendments trying to eliminate the proposed pre-k scholarship linkage to the Choice Scholarship in kindergarten. Please email your representatives letting them know you support HB 1004 and want the kindergarten Choice provision kept in the bill.

Support Relief from Deportation for Youth

Posted by

The BRIDGE (Bar Removal of Individuals who Dream and Grow our Economy) Act, S.128/H.R. 496, was recently introduced in Congress as a bipartisan effort to sustain the temporary relief from deportation and employment eligibility offered to youth through the Department of Homeland Security's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Under the BRIDGE Act, young people who came to the United States as children would maintain their eligibility to work and live in the U.S. without the fear of deportation and family separation so long as they meet certain requirements, such as showing a commitment to education or honorable service in our military and having no history of serious crime.

There are more than 750,000 young people who have received and benefitted from DACA. These youth entered the U.S. as children and know America as their only home. They are contributors to our economy, veterans of our military, academic standouts in our universities, and leaders in our parishes and communities. As Catholics, we have long supported DACA youth and their families as we believe in protecting the dignity of every human being, especially that of our children. 

Ask your Senators and Representative to support and co-sponsor the BRIDGE ACT.
