Bismarck Diocese Joins FOCA opposition

From the Bismarck Tribune:

The Bismarck Catholic Diocese, along with other dioceses throughout the U.S., will participate in the “Fight FOCA Postcard Campaign” beginning Jan. 24-25.

In Bismarck, volunteers will gather at the Church of the Ascension on Monday to insert postcards and information about the campaign into approximately 24,000 Dakota Catholic Action newspapers, which are sent to every Catholic household in the diocese, which covers roughly western North Dakota.

The Fight FOCA Postcard Campaign has been organized to oppose attempts in Congress to pass the Freedom of Choice Act or other similar abortion-related legislation, diocesan officials said.

The campaign is sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the National Committee for a Human Life Amendment.

Among those at the Ascension volunteer effort Monday will be Bishop Paul Zipfel, Sister Susan Lardy, vice president of Mission Effectiveness and chair of the Ethics Committee at St. Alexius Medical Center, and Christopher Dodson, executive director of the North Dakota Catholic Conference.

Thanks to Mary T for sending this information.
