Religious Freedom Week takes place June 22 – 29. The Week begins with the Feast of Saints John Fisher and Thomas More, ends with the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, and includes the Feast of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist. This year’s Religious Freedom Week is also notable in that it includes the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) and the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The Catholic Church in the United States celebrates Religious Freedom Week to highlight the importance of defending religious liberty. We are called to follow Christ as missionary disciples by seeking the truth, serving others, and living our faith in all that we do. Let us take a few moments each day to pray, reflect, and take action on religious liberty, both here in this country and abroad.
