Event: A Call for Religious Freedom

On Thursday, March 1 at 7pm, Acton Institute president Rev. Robert Sirico will speak about the implications of the recent mandate for religious organizations handed down by the Health and Human Services Department of the federal government under the Affordable Care Act of 2010.

Rev. Sirico will explain the mandate and the February 2012 revision of that mandate, as well as the Constitutional protections for religion and conscience in the United States.  The implications for Catholic hospitals, Christian schools, and all faith-based organizations will be considered within the broader context of our history and religious tradition.  Father Sirico will be joined in prayer by Rev. Phil Smith, pastor of the Eternal Word Church in Grandville, and Rev. Tyler Wagenmaker, pastor of Beaverdam Christian Reformed Church.

The evening will take place at Ridge Point Community Church, 340 – 104th Avenue, Holland, Michigan. Please use Entrance C in “The Center.” This event is free and open to the public.
