Carhart Abortuary Caught Operating Without A Lab Permit

Our colleague over at Restore DC Catholicism has reported, via Operation Rescue, that:

Germantown Reproductive Health Services was caught on September 25, 2015 operating without a valid medical laboratory permit.  This was revealed during an inspection of the abortuary.  The permit they displayed expired in August 2013; at the time of the inspection the permit was already two years obsolete.  GRHS was also cited for failing to ensure that its employees were proficient in testing women for the Rh blood factor.

For those catholycs who think that abortion should be safe and legal, then you should be outraged that Carhart has been doing such things.  But probably are not.

Still No Announcement About Mt. Calvary School Closing

Three editions of the Catholic Standard have come out since the closing was announced, and not one word about it.   I guess they are waiting until all of the school focused editions are over before announcing it.   

We advertise on WMAL about Catholic Cemeteries, but not one word about Catholic elementary and high schools.

Very Sad!

Cardinal Wuerl at Notre Dame. What will he do?

Cardinal Wuerl is scheduled to celebrate Mass at Notre Dame and receive an honorary degree.  This at the same time as VP Joe Biden, the highest ranking elected Catholyc, will receive an honorary degree.


Cardinal Wuerl made an issue of Georgetown University and PP.  Will he do something to show that ND is wrong with honoring pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage Biden?


Probably not.

Mt. Calvary Catholic Elementary School (Forestville, MD) to Close

I have been meaning to post this since Sunday, but have not had the chance.

On April 18th the Archdiocese announced to the parents and and students, that after 67 years, the school will close.   All Catholic school officials and pastors, in the Archdiocese, were notified of this the next day.

At this time, there seems to have been very little communicated about this by the Archdiocese.   There is no reference to it on the school or parish website. 

I suspect that the announcement was made at this time, so as not to give parents a chance to save the school from closing, and the Archdiocese a public relations headache.

I feel quite sad and sorry for those in the parish, the Bishop McNamara High School community, and esp. for those children who are currently enrolled.  I feel sad for the state of Catholic education in this Archdiocese.

For those who are interested, here is a great post about the history and memories of the school



(Note:  I do have documents to prove this and will post it if necessary, for those who might not believe.)
