Catholic Social Services of Southern Illinois is asking to join a lawsuit against the state over foster placements to gay couples.
The organization is affiliated with the Belleville diocese.
The Department of Children and Family Services ended its foster-care and adoption services with Catholic Charities July 1 because it says the group discriminates by not allowing gay couples to take kids.
Reporting from KBIA's Ryan Famuliner was used in this report.
Several St. Louis-area branches of the United States Postal Service are named on a "possible closure" list released by the Postal Service.
