June 22 – June 29 – Solidarity in Freedom


Once again, this year, the U.S. Bishops have declared June 22 – June 29 Religious Freedom Week.  We are all called to defend the God-given right of religious liberty, which faces grave threats in the U.S. and abroad.  Join us, as we pray, reflect, and take action on religious freedom.  Click on the topic for each day for more information.
