The second annual Fortnight for Freedom will take place from June 21 to July 4, and will consist of national and local efforts to educate Americans on challenges to religious liberty both at home and abroad. As with last year’s Fortnight, the event will begin and end with a special Mass.
The U.S. bishops have urged an intensification of penance and prayer for religious freedom in our country. The bishops have called for a Fortnight for Freedom, a two- week period of prayer and action, to address many current challenges to religious liber- ty, including the August 1, 2013 deadline for religious organizations to comply with the HHS mandate; Supreme Court rulings that could redefine marriage in June, and religious liberty concerns in areas such as immigration and humanitarian services.
For further details about the Fortnight can be found at www.Fortnight4Freedom.org
