Fortnight for Freedom

 

Fortnight for Freedom 2016: Witnesses to Freedom

Hold firm, stand fast, and insist upon what belongs to you by right as Catholics.- Our First, Most Cherished Liberty

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.

 

Celebrate the Fortnight for Freedom with your local church community!

 We invite you to Gather, Learn, Pray, Pilgrimage, and Share!
