Prevailing culture hard on religious liberty

Oregon tends to lead the pack in causes favored by some wings of the political left — legal abortion, assisted suicide, gay marriage, recreational marijuana.  

Some fear that next on the progressive docket could be tax exemption for churches and the right of church agencies to operate according to their ancient beliefs, especially in the dignity of life and marriage.

Our main purpose at this 36th General Congregation was to elect a new superior general and also to discuss how the Society can address the signs of our times.

NEW YORK (CNS) — An overheated tone and characters' questionable tactics in the struggle against abortion undercut the obviously good intentions behind the pro-life drama "Voiceless" (ArtAffects).

Students raise prayers, funds for children with cancer

It was a fitting weather combination for a day that acknowledged both heartbreak and joy. After raining all morning, the drops let up as soggy but smiley students wound their way down a muddy incline and gathered with an estimated 400 peers for Mass.

Ellis founded the Children’s Cancer Association more than 20 years ago after losing her 5-year-old daughter, Alexandra, to the disease.
