Fortnight for Freedom — Day 1

June 21 through July 4 will mark 14 days of prayer, study, and public witness for religious freedom for Catholics throughout the United States. The events begin with Cardinal Timothy Dolan celebrating mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on June 22 at 7 a.m. (it will be taped and televised on EWTN at 10 a.m.).

Although Rockland Right to Life is not a Catholic organization, we support  them and people of all faiths who seek to uphold religious liberty and refuse to comply with state mandates that try to compel churches to act against their own teaching, preaching, and sacredly held beliefs.
