Congress is about to vote on the most radical abortion bill of all time.
 
The so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act” (H.R. 3755/S. 1975) would impose abortion on demand, at any stage of pregnancy. It would apply nationwide—even in states that don’t want it.
 
 
Even modest and popular pro-life laws at every level of government—the federal, state, and local level—would be on the chopping block. This includes parental notification for minor girls, informed consent, and health or safety protections for abortion facilities.
 
It would force Americans to pay for abortions here and abroad with their tax dollars.
 
It would also likely force health care professionals like doctors and nurses to perform, assist in, and/or refer for abortion against their deeply-held beliefs. Employers and insurers would be forced to cover or pay for abortion.
 
We need to tell the House NOW that this horrible bill must never be enacted.
 
Join Archbishop Naumann in demanding the House oppose H.R. 3755/S.1975.
 
Check out the Archbishop's letter  and this Fact Sheet to learn more about what you can do to STOP this bill from becoming law.

Official Statement of the Archdiocese regarding lifting the dispensation of the duty of Mass

Official Statement of the Archdiocese:
Roman Catholic Province of Indianapolis
Lifting the dispensation of duty of the mass
As of June 11, 2021
 
Eucharist celebration at Mass is the source and summit of our life and mission as Catholic.
Since March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Roman Catholics across the Indianapolis Province, which includes the five diocese of Indiana, have been dispensed from the obligation to attend mass on Sundays and days of precept. However, with declining cases in our state, widespread availability of vaccines and following guidance from public health officials, we can now safely receive more parishioners for masses. Therefore, as of June 11, solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the general dispensation of duty to attend mass across the state of Indiana is lifted.
Save the unique situations described below, healthy people are required to attend Sunday Mass as of the weekend of June 12-13, 2021:
• Those who are seriously ill, exhibit flu symptoms or may have a contagious disease (this includes exposure quarantine).
• Those who cannot attend mass for reasons beyond their will (e.g. transportation problems).
• Persons confined at home or incapacitated by age, illness or medical restrictions.
• Those who have health conditions that put them at risk of getting the virus.
• Persons who care for sick or people at high risk of becoming seriously ill if they get the COVID-19. virus.
If you have any questions about any specific needs, concerns, or protocol, we recommend you contact your parish directly Your parish priest, who has the authority to grant dispensation in individual cases, can help address individual fears and concerns
of the parishioners.
Attending the mass is a joyful obligation, reflecting the very character of who we are as a Catholic

Congratuations!
