- The cathedral church of the Diocese of Charlotte is hosting a continuous Eucharistic vigil for liberty during the Democratic National Convention, which will take place in Charlotte from September 3-6.
- “This time of adoration and prayer will focus on petitions for our country, our leaders, and ourselves in atonement for our sins and for the future of our nation,” according to an event announcement. “Among these petitions are the right to live, unthreatened by government mandate, from natural conception to natural death, and for the freedom of conscience and the unhindered worship of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
- “We will also ask our Lord for an increase in holy vocations to the priesthood and the consecrated life within the Diocese of Charlotte and the wider world.”
- In 2004, Bishop Peter Jugis decreed that Catholic politicians who supported abortion would not be permitted to receive Holy Communion in the diocese.
