Fortnight For Freedom

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has announced a special time for prayer and education including the 14 days from June 21 – the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More, great martyrs who remained faithful in the fact of religious persecution – to July 4, Independence Day.  This time period, called the “Fortnight for Freedom,” will be dedicated to prayer, study, catechesis, and public action about both our Christian and American heritage of liberty.
