Fortnight for Freedom 2014

En Español

This nationwide event, focusing on prayer, education and action, will be held June 21 to July 4. The opening Mass will be celebrated by Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore on Saturday, June 21 at 5:30 p.m. (Eastern Time) at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Baltimore. It will be broadcast by EWTN.

During the fortnight, we celebrate the feast days of St. Thomas More, St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, Sts. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome. These martyrs remained faithful in the face of religious persecution from civil authorities. This year's theme is: "Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Serve," which focuses on the freedom to serve the poor and vulnerable in accord with human dignity and the Church's teaching.

The closing Mass will be celebrated by Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C. with Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Ky. as the homilist, on Friday, July 4 at noon (Eastern Time) at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. Archbishop Kurtz is the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. This Mass will also be televised nationally by EWTN.
