We want to protect Santa and all of the children, so Santa and Mrs. Claus suggested we have a ‘drive by’ visit! Follow the signs, listen for the bells and look for Santa in front of the Parish Life Center.

Save the Hyde Amendment!

Stop Taxpayer Funding of Abortion. Save the Hyde Amendment!


People should not be forced to pay for abortion with their tax dollars against their will. The Hyde Amendment has majority support. A January 2021 Marist poll found that 58% of Americans oppose federal funding of abortion. A November 2020 McLaughlin poll found that 64% of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion. The McLaughlin poll notably found that 69% of Independents and even 49% of Democrats oppose taxpayer of abortion. 

The Hyde Amendment has enjoyed bipartisan support since 1976 and has been continually included in the appropriations process since then. The Hyde Amendment is estimated to have saved over 2.4 million lives. It was estimated that before the Hyde Amendment took effect, the Medicaid program was paying for about 300,000 elective abortions annually, and that number was escalating rapidly. 

The Hyde Amendment is not discriminatory. It saves babies of all ethnicities. Government funding of abortion is discriminatory. According to the Centers for Disease Control, African American babies are killed by abortion at a rate more than three times that of non-Hispanic white babies and Hispanic babies are aborted at a rate of almost 75% greater than that of nonHispanic white babies. Taxpayer funding of abortion would kill even more African American and Hispanic babies. President Biden and the pro-abortion Democratic leadership should not be allowed to remove the Hyde Amendment and force everyone to pay for abortion with their tax dollars.

Dear Members of the Parish,

As your pastor, I highly encourage you to participate in this request from the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, regarding these important pieces of legislation, and contacting Senators Toomey and Casey.

The links will guide you through the process. If you are unable to do this, then I would encourage you to make a phone call. Thank you for your efforts at being involved and informed citizens and Catholics.

Sincerely Yours in Our Lord,

Monsignor Joseph P. Gentili


So-Called Equality Act
Please contact U.S. Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey and urge them to oppose the so-called Equality Act (H.R. 5). The bill would potentially expand abortion in general, and taxpayer funding of abortion in particular. Contact Senators Casey and Toomey here:

National Right to Life
National Right to Life Committee opposed passage of H.R. 5. In addition to other issues, H.R. 5 poses a significant pro-life threat. More on this legislation can be found here:
