Fortnight to Freedom Begins in the USA - for Religious Freedom - Join in Prayer!
Fortnight For Freedom
Freedom to Serve
The Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Serve will take place from June 21 to July 4, 2014, a time when our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power—St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome. The theme of this year's Fortnight will focus on the freedom to serve the poor and vulnerable in accord with human dignity and the Church's teaching.
Please check out the menu items on the left side of this page to view prayer resources, fact sheets, and other helpful Fortnight and religious liberty pages.
Special Masses will be celebrated in Baltimore on June 21 and in Washington, D.C. on July 4. Please check your local TV listings!
