Pray, Fast and Make Your Voice Heard

This week we celebrate the 2015 Fortnight for Freedom. As we examine the domestic challenges to religious liberty, we are encouraged by our shepherd, Bishop Loverde, to “use this period of time for prayer, study, and advocacy,”  so that we are, “ equipped with the spiritual and practical resources needed to bear witness to the fullness of  faith in our culture.”

Our shepherd, Bishop Paul Loverde, joins his brother bishops in calling us to get serious about protecting our most important freedom – religious liberty. Watch this video from the USCCB.  Share it on your social media accounts.  Pray. Fast. Make your voice heard.  The time to be courageous witnesses to the Good News of Jesus Christ is now.  Will you join us?

At the core of many current threats to religious liberty…is a challenge to the biblical revelation of the purpose of human sexuality, the nature of marriage and the inviolability of human life in all of its stages. The right to life is the fundamental human right upon which all others are built. And, as Pope Saint John Paul II has said, “the family is the building block of society.” What could be more important than preserving our right to bear witness to these two truths?

– Bishop Loverde

Please join Bishop Loverde and Fr. David Pignato on Saturday, June 27 for a morning of prayer and a powerful address about our freedom to bear witness.
