US bishops announce 3rd Fortnight for Freedom

Catholic World News - April 29, 2014

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has announced that the third annual Fortnight for Freedom will be held from June 21 to July 4.

The bishops launched the campaign of prayer and action in 2012 in the face of the threat to religious liberty posed by the HHS mandate.

This year’s theme, “Freedom to Serve,” emphasizes the “link between religious liberty and service to the poor and vulnerable,” according to the bishops’ conference.

“This is a time when Catholics can unite themselves in prayer to the men and women throughout history who spread the Gospel and lived out Jesus’ call to serve the ‘least of these’ in even the direst of circumstances,” said Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, chairman of the US bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty.
