    • Description: "Lucas County Common Pleas Judge Myron Duhart blocked an order issued by the Ohio Department of Health to close the Capital Care Network, an abortion facility in Toledo, Ohio. Duhart’s decision will allow the abortion business to stay open while it appeals the Ohio Department of Health action. Lance Himes, ODH’s Interim Director, rescinded the facility’s license last week and ordered it to shut down by August 12, 2014. Capital Care Network owners immediately appealed."

    Transforming Parish Communications: Growing the Church Through New Media

    • Description: From the Foreword written by Cardinal Seán O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston: "In this book, Scot Landry explains why it is critical for parishes, as hubs of the New Evangelization, to embrace new media. He indicates what the essential new media tools are for parishes today, shares practical strategies for how to implement them, and describes how these tools can transform parish communications. I am confident that Scot s practical wisdom, passion for evangelization, and enthusiasm for new media will help parish leaders overcome any hesitancy about embracing these new methods. We would like all parishes to have a program for engaging those on the digital continent and leading them to be transformed by the grace of the Sacraments and the love of the Christian community within the Church."
