Join Catholics for Freedom of Religion at St. Patrick’s Church, Huntington, on July 29 for an evening for the laity and by the laity of information and discussion of the Health and Human Services Mandate. This regulation so impacts all religious and non-religious employers that 63 lawsuits have been filed to stop its imposition.

As of Jan 1, 2015, the HHS mandate under the Affordable Care Act takes effect requiring Catholic Institutions to violate their conscience or pay devastating fines. Who is at risk?
Catholic hospitals, schools, universities, and charities. What is the penalty?
All will incur fines of $100 per day / per employee for each day they do not provide insurance covering contraception, sterilization, and abortion inducing drugs. As of Jan 1, 2015,and each day thereafter some estimates of these fines would be:
$5700/day — Parish of Church of St Patrick, Huntington, NY
$300,000/day — St. Francis Hospital: The Heart Center, NY
$530,000/day — Notre Dame University, IN
$4,600,000/day — Catholic Charities USA
These unthinkable fines could bankrupt Catholic hospitals which treat one in six Americans, some schools and universities which educate our children and charities which serve the needy.
Will our Catholic Institutions survive?
Join fellow Long Island Catholics to learn, speak and act:
