Apr 4 Mon 10am - Join Bishop McManus and students from our Catholic schools for the annual Mass for Life on the Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, Monday, April 4, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at the Cathedral of St. Paul, 38 High St. Worcester. All are welcome!

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has become the latest example of a cowardly Republican who has thrown people of faith to the wolves by vetoing extremely modest religious liberty legislation (HB 757) that would have protected pastors, churches and religious groups from having to participate in same-sex 'weddings' or host them in their facilities. Deal's action makes it open season on Christians, churches and other people of faith who do not want to be personally forced to be a part of a same-sex ceremony that they oppose on religious grounds.

Catholic Vote endorses Ted Cruz for President.
- Senator Cruz has consistently defended the First Amendment right to religious liberty. As Solicitor General of Texas, Ted Cruz argued in favor of a Ten Commandments display in court. The case eventually led to a Supreme Court victory for religious expression.
- Cruz has promised to investigate Planned Parenthood and stop once and for all the taxpayer giveaway of hundreds of millions of dollars every year to the abortion giant.
- Cruz has a plan to lower taxes for everyone, abolish the IRS, and repeal job-killing regulations that hurt workers and small businesses.
- Cruz understands the qualities necessary for Supreme Court justices that will obey the Constitution.
- Cruz has never wavered in his support of the rights of those working to create a marriage culture.
