News  RELIGIOUS LIBERTY
The Archdiocese of Hartford is encouraged by the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case. Since the beginning, the position of the Archdiocese has been that no individual or employer should be forced to pay for health insurance that violates their religious beliefs. We will have to wait and examine carefully all of the details of the ruling; however, the ruling appears to affirm the religious freedom of Americans.

Statement by the Connecticut Catholic Conference:
United States Supreme Court upholds religious freedom
