Alexandria, Va. (June 17, 2021)–Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling in favor of religious freedom in the Fulton v. City of Philadelphia case.
Catholic Charities USA welcomes the court’s ruling today to protect Catholic Social Services of Philadelphia’s ability to serve people in need in a manner consistent with the Church’s faith and values. In their history, Catholic Charities agencies have enjoyed a cooperative partnership with government to work for the common good.
