Fortnight for Freedom 2014

Share this post


The Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Serve will take place from June 21 to July 4, 2014, a time when our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power—St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome. The theme of this year's Fortnight will focus on the freedom to serve the poor and vulnerable in accord with human dignity and the Church's teaching.

The Diocese of Saginaw will celebrate the Fortnight for Freedom with a Mass for Freedom at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at Holy Family Parish,  Following Mass, Bishop Cistone will lead a procession from the Church, across Hoyt Street to the Saginaw Veteran’s War Memorial. A brief ceremony will be held to honor veterans who have fought and died for freedom, including religious freedom. All are welcome!
