Bishops around the world are being asked to take a look at the situation of families in their dioceses and assess the effectiveness of pastoral teaching on marriage and family in preparation for the extraordinary Synod of Bishops on the family to be held in October 2014. The preparatory document ends with 38 questions seeking a response from bishops, religious orders and other Catholic groups. The survey may be viewed online here.

Thank you to everyone who contacted our state legislators regarding the Abortion Insurance Opt Out Act. The Michigan Legislature this week passed the Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act by a 27-11 vote in the Senate and a 62-47 vote in the House before going on Christmas break, ensuring that Michigan tax dollars will not be used to pay for elective abortions.
