Archbishop Charles J. Chaput invites us to fast today, March 30

Archbishop Charles J. Chaput

In times of need we turn to God through the acts of prayer and fasting. These practices draw us closer to the Lord as we seek His assistance and protection. I, along with my brother bishops in Pennsylvania, have asked Catholics across the Commonwealth to join us in dedicating the regular Lenten Friday practices of prayer, fasting, and abstinence on Friday, March 30th to the preservation of religious liberty.

An assault by the federal government on religious liberty continues in the form of the HHS mandates and we must stay vigilant in our fight to preserve this important and basic right. I ask you to join me on March 30th in offering your Lenten sacrifice for the cause of religious freedom. May God bless you.
-Archbishop Charles J. Chaput
