The Fortnight for Freedom is a two-week period in which the Catholic Church in America focuses on education and raising awareness about the importance of religious liberty. The Fortnight begins on June 21, the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More, and continues through July 4, Independence Day.
This year's theme is Freedom for Mission. We are called to follow Christ as missionary disciples by seeking the truth, serving others, and living our faith in all that we do.
We invite you to explore the resources listed below to learn more about the Fortnight for Freedom and religious liberty, why it's so important, and the threats it is facing in our country today.
