Fortnight for Freedom

Event Time: June 21, 2014


Fortnight for Freedom - Catholic Dioceses and Parishes across the United States are once again encouraged to raise awareness for domestic and international religious freedom concerns during the third annual Fortnight for Freedom, June 21-July 4. The two-week celebration will focus on the theme, \"Freedom to Serve,\" emphasizing the link between religious liberty and service to the poor and vulnerable. Additional details about planning and resources for the Diocese of Venice will be sent out in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, the USCCB has prepared materials to help parishes participate in the Fortnight, including templates and guides for special prayer services, a list of frequently asked questions about religious liberty, one-page fact sheets on current threats to religious freedom in the U.S. and around the world, and a study guide on Dignitatis Humanae, the Second Vatican Council\'s Declaration on Religious Freedom. These materials and more information on the Fortnight and related issues can be found online at www.fortnight4freedom.org and www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/religious-liberty/.
