Fight FOCA postcard campaign ready - ask your pastor!

I only have a minute but I must tell you all about this. The Bishops unanimously approved a massive co-ordinated postcard campaign to have parishioners sign postcards asking Congress to oppose FOCA and other anti-life measures. It is similar to the campaign to ban partial-birth abortion back in ?96.

All the info is available online here.

Please contact your pastor to find out when your parish will be running the campaign: the USCCB recommends the weekends of the 24-25th Jan, and the two following. Offer to help if possible. People will be needed to do simple things like collecting the signed cards, addressing them, stamping and mailing.

If your pastor has not yet made plans for the campaign, this information will help you work with him to set it up.

If for some reason your parish is not planning to be involved, contact your diocesan Respect Life office -- find that info here.

It is also possible to order the postcards yourself or download the PDF and print a set (or several).

More info on FOCA, including downloadable bulletin inserts / ads can be found on the main USCCB FOCA page.
