Trenton, N.J. (CNA) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stripped $7.5 million in Planned Parenthood and other funding from the state budget on June 30 and transferred the money instead to federal health centers.

The governor narrowly avoided a midnight deadline that would have shut down the state government. He did so by individually cutting $900 million from the Democrat-proposed budget and then signing it, as opposed to rejecting it outright.

The move allowed Christie to enact the state’s $29.7 billion budget seven hours before the new fiscal year began.

“It is my solemn pact with the residents and taxpayers of New Jersey to never allow a return to the kind of reckless, autopilot spending...READ MORE

Father John Corapi has submitted his resignation from the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT), the Register has learned.

Father Gerard Sheehan, regional priest servant of SOLT, said in a press release dated July 5 that the popular priest and speaker has inspired countless thousands of Catholics, “many of whom continue to express their support of him.”

However, Father Sheehan added, “SOLT also recognizes that Father Corapi is now misleading these individuals through his false statements and characterizations. It is for these Catholics that SOLT, by means of this announcement, seeks to set the record straight.”

The press release follows in full:

Providence, R.I. (EWTN News) — The U.S. Catholic bishops have expressed their disapproval with a civil-unions bill likely to be signed into law after passing Rhode Island’s state Senate on June 29.

“In no way can civil-union measures be considered a permissible compromise or a step in advancing the common good, said Bishop Salvatore Cordileone, chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, in a July 1 statment. “Instead, they directly violate principles of justice and accelerate the push to redefine marriage itself.”

The bill, likely to be signed by Gov. Lincoln Chafee, would allow same-sex couples to enter into a “legal union” with “all the rights,...READ MORE

BLADENSBURG, Md. — “As we began to think about certain matters, our hearts began to melt, and we moved towards Rome,” said Father Mark Lewis, rector of a church that was formerly St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Bladensburg, Md.

St. Luke’s has made headlines as the first Episcopal church in the Washington, D.C., area and the second in the state of Maryland to avail itself of Pope Benedict XVI’s offer to Anglicans. That offer was outlined in Anglicanorum Coetibus, an apostolic constitution that makes it possible for groups of Anglican congregations to enter the Catholic Church

For the St. Luke community, that will happen on Oct. 9, when Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington will...READ MORE
