For the second year, the U.S. bishops have called for a “Fortnight for Freedom,” a 14-day period of prayer, education and action to support religious liberty in America. The fortnight begins on June 21, the vigil of the feast of Sts. Thomas More and John Fisher, who were martyred for remaining faithful in the face of political persecution. The fortnight ends on July 4, Independence Day.
Looking for ways to participate? The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has compiled a list of 14 activities the faithful can do to promote religious liberty in their communities, and dioceses throughout the country are hosting special events and activities that will help the faithful to participate in the Fortnight for Freedom.
Below are links to activities taking place in our listening area. If your diocese is not listed below, you can search the full list of dioceses on the USCCB’s web site.
