Religious Freedom Week highlights Church’s mission

Barbara Samuells, president of Catholics for Freedom of Religion, a New York-based grassroots advocacy group that educates Catholic parishes about the importance of religious freedom, told the Register religious freedom both “allows us to teach the truth of our Catholic faith” and carry on the work of the Gospel “without being pushed out of the public square,” whether it is education, community food kitchens, sheltering the homeless or helping children obtain adoption in stable households.
