Fortnight for Freedom

This is the default one-video player that automatically it is used to show videos grabbed by users with the get code feature of one of our players.

Freedom to Serve

The Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Serve will take 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.

We will continue to update this site, but in the meantime, please visit our Religious Liberty Home Page to learn more about ongoing religious liberty threats at home and abroad. Thank you for supporting the fight for religious freedom!
Special Masses will be celebrated in Baltimore on June 21 and in Washington, D.C. on July 4.
