Fortnight for Freedom


The U.S. bishops have called for a Fortnight for Freedom, a two-week period of prayer and action. 

The initiative is meant to address the current challenges to religious liberty in the United States, including the August 1, 2013 deadline for religious organizations to comply with the HHS mandate, Supreme Court rulings that could attempt to redefine marriage in June, and religious liberty concerns in areas such as immigration and humanitarian services.
