Posted by AP reporter at 2:08 PM EST The story of the Catholic priest who was converted to Christianity by the Catholic Church is part of the National Religious Freedom Week.
It’s part of a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about religious freedom, a core concern of President Donald Trump and his administration.
In this week’s National Religious Free Week, Catholics are encouraged to attend the “Spiritual Freedom Awareness Day” at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6.
On that day, they are encouraged not to “make a statement that violates your religious freedom or that infringes on other people’s religious freedom,” according to a statement from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
“We know that we are not alone in our faith,” said Archbishop Oscar Romero, president of the U,S.
“The message is that the people of this country have the right to know where they stand and who their representatives are in Washington.”
The event is free to attend.
The event also includes a discussion of the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” passed in the U.,S.
House of Representatives in 2016 that was blocked by a federal judge.
The bill would have made it illegal to deny or limit religious freedoms to any person based on their religion.
The church is among many Christian denominations and groups that oppose the bill.
In 2015, the Supreme Court struck down the anti-discrimination law as unconstitutional.
But, the court did not strike down the statute because the court had not yet ruled on the constitutionality of other provisions of the law.
In 2017, the House voted to add a religious freedom provision to the bill that allows businesses to refuse service to people on the basis of religion, including based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
The House also passed a law in 2018 that would require states to establish a process for protecting religious liberty.
In 2019, Congress passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Acts Restoration Act, which would have extended the protections of the Religious Liberty Restoration Act.
The law was signed into law by President Donald J. Trump on Feb. 3, 2019.
A spokesperson for the president’s office said, “The president is encouraged that all Americans can participate in this historic day of national dialogue on the rights of faith and religious freedom and that this important day will not be lost in the divisive and partisan debate that continues to divide our country.”
On Saturday, the U.’s bishops plan to hold an interfaith prayer vigil for St. Joseph of the Cross, a 19th-century French priest who converted to Catholicism and later became a monk.
The vigil is to be held at the St. Jerome Parish in New Jersey, a city that was a hotbed of civil rights and LGBT activism in the 1960s and 1970s.
The Rev. Joseph H. DiVincenzo, who will lead the service, told the Associated Press that the vigil is an opportunity to “celebrate the courage and perseverance of the saints who resisted persecution and were forced to flee the violence of the state.”
The Rev, Joseph H DiVinzo, will lead a prayer vigil at the Catholic Diocese of Newark, N.J., on Saturday.
The diocese will host the interfaith service and will distribute food to the community and attendees.
He said that he hoped people could be inspired to “re-engage in our common faith” and the dialogue that can result from this event.
In addition to the vigil, the diocese is holding a service for Sts.
Joseph and St. Francis of Assisi.
On Friday, DiVino said he will be leading a Sunday morning service for the family of a transgender woman who was raped while in a women’s restroom at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York.
The woman was assaulted and beaten at a facility where prisoners are held.
“This is a tragedy that should never have happened to any of us,” DiVini said.
“It is a shame that it has happened to so many transgender people.”
A vigil is being held for St John the Evangelist, a 16th- century Dominican friar who converted from Christianity to Catholicism in 1714.
The priest died in 1683 and was canonized by Pope Leo XIII in 1981.
A statement from Archbishop Romero said, The Pope’s call to Christians to “be brave and stand in the path of truth and righteousness” is a central part of his message and a way of expressing our faith.
The Archbishop said that in addition to attending the interfamilies, dioceses are encouraged “to share their stories with others in their community about how they have faced discrimination and discrimination.”
On Thursday, the National Council of Churches issued a statement in support of the vigil.
The council called the vigil “a time for reflection and reflection about the many ways in which religious freedom is under assault and in danger,” and said the gathering “is a powerful expression of the human spirit and our belief that the Gospel is a powerful message of justice
