Each year dioceses throughout the United States observe the Fortnight for Freedom, which begins on June 21st, the eve of the Feast Day of Saints Thomas More and John Fischer and culminates with Independence Day (July 4th). During this time of prayer, reflection and advocacy, Catholics are encouraged to champion for the protection of our most cherished freedoms set in place by our founding fathers.
The theme of this year’s celebration is Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom for Mission. Through following Jesus, we serve as missionary disciples bringing hope, comfort and truth to all people we encounter. When religious freedom is defended and upheld, people of all religious backgrounds are free to live the tenets of their faith without fear or coercion.
Please join with Catholics nationwide in recommitting ourselves to supporting and protecting religious liberty in our country and in our world.
