Archbishop Pérez Statement on Derek Chauvin Verdict

Archbishop Nelson J. Pérez Statement following the Verdict in the Trial of Derek Chauvin

“The anguish, grief, and fear that consumed our country last spring following the tragic and disturbing death of George Floyd was overwhelming. In the immediate aftermath, old wounds were ripped wide open as the mortal sin of racism cut through our communities.

As a people of faith, Catholics believe that every life holds value and should be treated with dignity. In the name of the people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, I share in the continued pain and sadness felt by so many.  CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL STATEMENT.

The Equality Act and What It Means for Catholics

A Message from the Catholic Diocese of Arlington



Thanks to all who watched live last week’s informational webinar: The Equality Act and What it Means for Catholics.  We understand that some had difficulty accessing the event and we are sorry for that inconvenience.

Linked hereplease find both the entire webinar and individual videos of each speaker’s presentation. Key points provided by the USCCB are also attached and appear below the videos by topic with the pertinent presentation. The key points are also available as a downloadable .pdf on this Equality Act Resource Page offered by the Catholic Diocese of Arlington.

Next Steps?

Congress is now on break for two weeks. During this time, which includes Holy Week, we hope all Catholics will pray intensely for the triumph of truth and the defeat of this legislation. When Congress reconvenes on April 12 we urge everyone to engage by calling their senators or sending an email to oppose the Equality Act.
