As Bishop of the Diocese of Trenton, I encourage all our Catholic clergy, religious and lay faithful to sign a petition to protect congressional legislative provisions in support of life: by July 16. Please access the New Jersey Catholic Conference website: and also read the Action Alerts posted on the NJCC website:

Please consider writing letters in strong support of pro-life protections to our NJ senators and congressmen/congresswomen.

Thank you and God bless and protect you all, born and unborn.

Bishop O’Connell
