Fortnight for Freedom

U.S. Bishops Call for Another Fortnight for Freedom

fortnight-for-freedom-logo-color 2014The U.S. bishops, including Bishop David L. Ricken, have called for a Fortnight for Freedom, a two-week period of prayer, study and action, to address many current challenges to religious liberty at home and abroad.

Several domestic threats to our first and most cherished freedom include:

  • 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

Bishop Ricken is calling on Catholic institutions and people of other faiths to join the national effort to defend religious freedom. He is asking the parishes or clusters of parishes to choose a date during the Fortnight for Freedom -- June 21 to July 4 -- for local special events that would complement the U.S. Bishops' national campaign of teaching and witness for religious liberty.

 


Diocesan Event: July 4, 2014 | Faith on the Fox | Green Bay

Faith on the Fox | July 4, 2014Bishop David Ricken will celebrate Mass at 5 p.m. July 4 as part of Fortnight for Freedom. A meet and greet with Bishop Ricken will follow Mass. Refreshments will be served.
