Welcome to Forward Church, a community-based organization dedicated to promoting faith, beliefs, and fostering a sense of community among Catholics in the Diocese of Sacramento. Today, we stand united as Bishop Soto urges all Catholics in our community to oppose Senate Bills 380-245 which threaten to undermine religious freedom and the principles we hold dear.

Understanding Senate Bills 380-245

Senate Bills 380-245 are proposed legislations that have raised concerns among religious organizations and communities, including the Diocese of Sacramento. These bills aim to restrict certain aspects of religious practices and could potentially infringe upon our constitutionally protected rights of free exercise of religion.

At Forward Church, we believe in the fundamental importance of religious freedom, as it allows individuals and communities to practice their faith without undue interference from the state. We recognize the potential consequences and impacts that these bills may have on our ability to freely exercise our religious beliefs.

Our Stance and Actions

As a faith-based community organization, Forward Church firmly opposes Senate Bills 380-245. We stand in solidarity with Bishop Soto and all Catholics in the Diocese of Sacramento in urging our members, as well as the wider community, to voice their opposition to these bills.

We understand the important role that regular communication and engagement play in generating awareness and building support for causes that align with our faith and beliefs. Through our channels, including sermons, social media platforms, and community gatherings, we are actively educating our members and the community about the potential implications of these bills.

In addition to raising awareness, we are collaborating with other like-minded organizations, participating in events, and advocating for the protection of religious rights. By engaging in peaceful protests, contacting local representatives, and employing various advocacy strategies, we strive to ensure that our voices are heard and our concerns are addressed.
