- Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and a group of Republican senators are demanding the Department of Defense explain why it terminated a decades-old pastoral care contract with a group of Catholic priests at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
- In the letter provided exclusively to the Washington Examiner, the senators requested Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin explain why Walter Reed abruptly canceled a pastoral care contract with the Franciscan priests from Holy Name College Friary at the beginning of Holy Week.
- The Catholic Archdiocese of Military Services said last week that the priests had ministered to the hospital for decades.
