Fortnight for Freedom

Once again, the Archdiocese of Baltimore is sponsoring the "Fortnight for Freedom" from June 21st to July 4th!  As Archbishop Lori stated in his homily during his Installation Mass:

“We defend religious liberty because we are lovers of every human person, seeing in the face of every man and woman also the face of Christ, who loved us to the very end of his earthly life and who still calls on us to love and serve our neighbor with the same love he has bestowed on us.  We do this because Archbishop John Carroll’s generation of believers and patriots bequeathed to us a precious legacy that has enabled the Church to worship in freedom, to bear witness to Christ publicly, and to do massive and amazing works of pastoral love, education, and charity in ways that are true to the faith that inspired them in the first place.”

You can visit this page on the archdiocese's website for all the details on the many activities being held, from poster contests to prayer cards to a calendar of events.  Be a part of this important celebration, support, recognize, and practice our Constitutional right to freedom of religion!
