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 emphasizes the many witnesses to religious freedom, both past and present.
Here are ideas for recognizing this special period of prayer and education in your own parish:
If you host an event in your parish, please consider posting it on the calendar at the Diocese of Manchester website at events.catholicnh.org so we can share the information with others who may be interested in attending. Your events will be posted on this page as well as in eNews.
