    One by one, they skated to center ice at the Fort Dupont Ice Arena on Nov. 7, Gonzaga hockey players clad in purple uniforms on one blue line, and in white on the opposite blue line. As each player’s name was announced, the members of the school’s two varsity teams clanked their hockey sticks on ice, to welcome each teammate joining them, as the crowd cheered. Behind the net, a purple and white banner with Gonzaga’s logo read, “One Team, One Family.”

  • Today’s decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to uphold the HHS mandate against the legal challenge brought by the Archdiocese of Washington and its affiliated ministries is very troubling and deeply flawed. The ruling makes an offensive distinction between the Church and its ministries of service. It specifically classifies the services provided by Catholic hospitals, clinics, universities, schools and social service ministries as ‘not inherently religious,’ and thus disqualified for inclusion in the mandate’s exemption for ‘houses of worship.’ In other words, the Court holds that although churches should not be required to facilitate access to morally offensive products and procedures for their employees, church-affiliated ministries are not ‘religious enough’ to qualify for the very same exemption.

Cardinal Donald Wuerl celebrated the Archdiocese of Washington’s annual Mass honoring people with special needs and those who serve them.

  • Archbishop Carroll Food Drive gives students  a chance for ‘God to work through you’
    For most people, Thanksgiving means enjoying a feast of turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie along with friends and family.

  • 5 ways to put the thanks back in Thanksgiving
    I love Thanksgiving. It has the family, the food and the laughter without all the expectations and commercialism. Christmas can be hard because it has to compete in people’s minds against all the movie and Christmas versions. But, how many Thanksgiving movies are there?
