A group of lay Catholics in Colorado is placing a full-page ad in the Sunday edition of the Denver Post to drive home the importance of religious freedom in the upcoming election.
"I think the folks who organized getting the ad together want to ensure everybody understands what's at stake not only for the Church, but for the country, when religious liberty is compromised," said J.D. Flynn, chancellor of the Denver archdiocese.
The full-page ad, which will run in the Sunday, Nov. 4 edition of The Denver Post, will feature the full text of the Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila's Nov. 1 letter on religious freedom and the election.
Flynn said that purchasing the ad in the Sunday edition, which reaches 964,000 readers, "isn't cheap," but the fact that over 20 Denver-area Catholics committed to fund it shows that they "support the archbishop in his public ministry."
