I am Looking For:

Fortnight for Freedom

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has called for a “Fortnight for Freedom,” a 14-day period of prayer, education, and action in support of religious freedom, from June 21 to July 4. The event begins with the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More and ends with Independence Day. This special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action is intended to emphasize both our Christian and American heritage of liberty. The theme of this year’s Fortnight will focus on the freedom to bear witness to the truth of the Gospel.

Here are ideas for recognizing this special period of prayer and education in your own parish:
