    Icon Reaction to Latest HHS Mandate Regs
    STEUBENVILLE, OH—Franciscan University of Steubenville joins a chorus of other religious groups and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to express strong disappointment over the latest proposed changes to the HHS mandate, announced August 22 by the federal government.

    "Having worked long and hard to build up America and cultivate a tradition of religious freedom, Catholics now find themselves under attack by the government we've long served. We had hoped for a total exemption from this mandate, not only for Franciscan University as a religious employer, but for all employers with closely-held religious objections to the mandate," Father Sheridan said. "We will continue to evaluate these latest developments and be ready to re-file our lawsuit at the appropriate time."
