Our Lady of Hope Clinic is a cause I personally support. This Catholic health clinic here is Madison WI is an example of how professional, caring physicians, nurses and others give to those in need. The Teachings of the Catholic Church are upheld without question.
Many times Catholics want to give to certain national causes only to find out that the organization is at odds with Church Teaching. What’s a faithful Catholic to do?
My suggestion is to give locally. Give to ONLY organizations which are truly Catholic. First, give to your priest personally. For example, Father Zuhlsdorf has a ministry where he must raise money to continue to minister millions on the Internet. A worthy cause.
Giving to an order of nuns you know are orthodox and not jumping on a bus to protest Catholic Teaching. The Dominicans of Summit NJ are one of many good choices.
If you want your money to go directly to help the healthcare of those in need who do not want to be pressured to have an abortion or to go on birth control or who cant pay the difference owed in Medicare, Our Lady of Hope Clinic, Madison, Wisconsin is the place.
It is a beautiful facility with doctors and health professionals who provide excellent healthcare according to Church Teaching and do so joyfully.
What follows is Father Zuhlsdorf’s post announcing their fundraiser near the end of April. Please consider donating even a small amount. Your money will go DIRECTLY to care for someone truly in need.
God love you,

I have an ACTION ITEM for you good readers. You have been generous to causes I have mentioned in the past. Sometimes people have a hard time finding causes to support. This is one of them that I admire.
I have written about Our Lady of Hope Clinic before. This is one of the worthiest causes I have seen for a while and it could use your help, wherever you are.
This could be a new model for health care in a rapidly changing – disintegrating – time. The “Affordable” Care Act really isn’t. It is going to be harder in the future for people to get health care, not easier. And for those without much bucks?
They have a DONATION page.
Contact Julie Jensen, Director of Development, at Julie -AT- ourladyofhopeclinic -DOT- org, or by calling (608) 957-1137.
In the clinic you see a sign on the wall explaining that…
“Our Lady of Hope Clinic practices medicine consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church”
Therefore, they will not refer for abortion, prescribe contraception, refer for sterilization, refer for in vitro fertilization, etc.
“We will practice in complete accord with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.”
This is a worthy cause.
I received an email today, about a fundraiser event for Our Lady of Hope clinic. They told me that whenever I mention them on the blog, they get donations from all over.
Thanks Father Z!
