Your Excellencies:

As you are aware, I believe that Catholic parishes and institutions need to disassociate themselves from those who prescribe/ dispense/ market abortifacients and contraceptives. Yet, numerous parishes are even carrying ads in their bulletins for providers of the notorious abortifacient Plan B. At the bottom of this email, you will find 10 such advertisments. This will bring to 34, the number of inappropriate ads which I have cited in recent correspondences (I have highlighted those parishes being cited for the first time in this email.):

  1. Annunciation BVM, Philadelphia
  2. Assumption BVM, Feasterville
  3. Epiphany, Philadelphia
  4. Holy Family, Philadelphia
  5. Holy Martyrs, Oreland
  6. Holy Savior, Norristown
  7. Maternity BVM,Philadelphia
  8. Mother of Divine Grace, Philadelphia
  9. Our Lady of Consolation, Parkesburg
  10. Our Lady of Grace, Penndel
  11. Our Lady of Mt Carmel, Bridgeport
  12. Our Mother of Consolation, Philadelphia
  13. Sacred Heart, Royersford
  14. St Anastasia, Newtown Square
  15. St Ann, Phoenixville
  16. St Anselm, Philadelphia
  17. St Augustine, Bridgeport
  18. St Basil the Great, Kimberton
  19. St Bridget, Philadelphia
  20. St Cecelia, Philadelphia
  21. St Helena, Blue Bell
  22. St Helena, Philadelphia
  23. St John the Baptist, Philadelphia
  24. St Josaphat, Philadelphia
  25. St Joseph, Collingdale
  26. St Joseph, Spring City
  27. St Jude, Chalfont
  28. St Leo, Philadelphia
  29. St Mary of the Assumption, Manayunk
  30. St Paul, East Norriton
  31. St Peter's, West Brandywine
  32. St Thomas Aquinas, Croydon
  33. St Titus, East Norriton

While I do not believe that this scandalous situation is the exclusive domain of any one publishing company, bulletins for each of the above parishes is handled by John Patrick Publishing. I prayerfully and respectfully request that the Archdiocese adopt a policy for all parishes of refusing ads from any promoter (be it a convenience store, a physician, a pharmacy, a department store pharmacy, or a supermarket pharmacy) of abortifacients and contraceptives. I also respectfully request an acknowledgement that you have received these communications.
