[STEUBENVILLE, OH, November 12, 2021] The Confraternity of Our Lady of Fatima, under the direction of Bishop Athanasius Schneider, today launches the Holy Faith Foundation. This new apostolate will financially assist Catholics who have lost their jobs due to COVID vaccine mandates.
Employers across the country, backed by the current Presidential Administration and various State governments, are requiring employees to take the COVID vaccine to continue employment. For many Catholics, this constitutes a violation of conscience. Although some employers allow for religious exemptions, an increasing number are rejecting those exemptions and are terminating the employment of the unvaccinated. The terminated include breadwinners of single-income large Catholic families, who now facing find many doors closed to them.
The Holy Faith Foundation will raise money and distribute grants to needy families like these. These grants will provide a short-term financial bridge as the unemployed seek new employment.
“Many faithful Catholics have been put in an impossible position,” said Eric Sammons, Chairman of the Holy Faith Foundation, “They must choose between violating their conscience or supporting their families. The Holy Faith Foundation will help them as they transition to a new job that won’t compromise their faith.”

The confraternity of Our Lady of Fatima is a world-wide family of Catholics who are dedicated to bringing about the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary as soon as possible and are dedicated to spending the rest of their lives living out the call of Our Lady of Fatima and in doing penance for poor sinners and reparation to Her Immaculate Heart.
The Confraternity was founded in 2020 by Christopher P. Wendt, the International Director, and Dr. Michael Sirilla, Professor of Dogmatic and Systematic Theology at Franciscan University, and was approved by His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider on July 26, 2020.
