Hundreds of people from across Long Island gathered Oct. 5th for a Rosary Rally for Religious  Liberty & the Preservation of Catholic Healthcare at Good Samaritan Hospital, West Islip.

The mandate from Health and Human Services calls for fines on Catholic hospitals, and other religious institutions, of $100 per day per employee, as of Jan.1, 2014, if they do not comply with new mandates for health insurance coverage of products and services that directly violate Catholic teachings.
