Following last week’s discovery of the remains of 215 children at the Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia, the bishop of Fairbanks and the faithful share their prayers and sorrow with the Native people of Canada. This tragic discovery brings awareness to the sad history the Church has had with Native people in the past in our own state. Bishop Chad Zielinski and the Diocese of Fairbanks commit themselves to walk side-by-side in dialogue with Alaska Native communities on a path to healing and reconciliation. Together with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, they re-affirm their commitment and responsibility to provide a safe environment within the Church for all children, youth and vulnerable adults. If you have suffered abuse at the hands of clergy or church personnel, please contact our Victim Assistance Coordinator, Cynthia, at 907-750-1132 or email at email@example.com.

The Vatican urges everyone concerned for the sanctity of life to protest the use of abortion-derived cell lines and advocate for the development of vaccines with no connection to abortion. To make it easier to take this action, the United States Catholic Bishops provided sample letters to pharmaceutical companies that are using abortion-derived cell lines to produce and/or test vaccines.
