Fortnight for Freedom
Posted in Cathedral Blog
The Fortnight extends from June 21st, the vigil of the Feast of St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, to Independence Day on July 4th. During that time Catholics around the country will stand together in support of religious liberty, our first freedom.We hope to draw attention to growing intrusions on religious liberty like the government mandate that forces Catholics to violate our deeply held beliefs or face stiff fines. That mandate takes effect this coming August 1st, making this year’s Fortnight especially important. We’re asking everyone to:
• PRAY for the protection of religious liberty and increased respect for the role of
faith in public life.
• EDUCATE yourselves and your family, friends, and neighbors by using the many
resources found at www.Fortnight4Freedom.org.
• SUPPORT national events like our opening and closing masses, as well as local
• ENCOURAGE our legislators to support H.R. 940, the Health Care Conscience
Once again, Catholics around the country will be standing up for our first freedom. We hope everyone will join us.
