Fortnight for Freedom Kick-Off Saturday, June 21st

Join Bishop John M Quinn and the rest of the United States Council of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to kick-off to Fortnight for Freedom on Saturday, June 21st. Our Saturday Holy Hour on June 21 (following the 8:00 am Mass at Cathedral), will also be dedicated to this most important cause.

The Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Serve takes place from June 21 to July 4, 2014, a time when our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power—St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome. The theme of this year's Fortnight will focus on the freedom to serve the poor and vulnerable in accord with human dignity and the Church's teaching.

If you unable to attend our Holy Hour, please consider saying a rosary or novena for Religious Freedom around the world. More information on current attacks on Religious Freedom can be found here.
