Fortnight for Freedom

 

Fortnight for Freedom 2016: Witnesses to Freedom

The martyrs give voice to what we already feel and they declare what we would like to have the strength to express. ~ Fides et Ratio


What is the Fortnight for Freedom?

Each year dioceses around the country arrange special events to highlight the importance of defending religious freedom. The Fortnight for Freedom is from June 21—the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More—to July 4, Independence Day.

New This Year

Witnesses to Freedom

This year, we will look at the lives of more than 14 women and men of faith, from all over the world, who bear witness to authentic freedom in Christ.
