The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has called for a "Fortnight for Freedom." This is a 14-day period of prayer, education, and action in support of religious freedom, from June 21 to July 4. This two-week period is a time when our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power. This year, the theme of the Fortnight will focus on the “freedom to bear witness” to the truth of the Gospel.
Please set some time aside during this 14-day period to pray for our religious freedom.
