A Fortnight For Freedom: Everything You Need to Know
Fortnight For Freedom begins today on the vigil of the feasts of Sts. Thomas More and John Fischer, two men who strongly opposed Henry VIII’s break with the Catholic Church. We’re beginning two weeks of prayer and events to create greater awareness regarding the current threats to religious freedom here in the United States.
Take a look at the listing of dioceses at the USCCB web page or the EWTN resource page to find out what is happening near you, and make plans for you and your family to attend. Here are some daily reflections on religious liberty.
As part of a national effort to educate, the USCCB announced this morning a text campaign to create a network so that people of goodwill can stay informed on the latest news and projects concerning efforts to promote and defend our religious freedom. Here’s how it works: Send a text to 377377 with either the word “freedom” or “libertad,” depending on whether you want your updates in English or Spanish. You’ll get an automatic response asking for your email and zip code. Then you’ll be connected to a network in solidarity with the bishops that will notify you to pray, learn and act on specific items.
