The Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Bear Witness will take place from June 21 to July 4, 2015, 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 bear witness” to the truth of the Gospel.
Thursday, June 25th at 12:15pm Bishop Robert P. Deeley will celebrate a special Mass at the Cathedral
Msgr. John E. Kozar, president of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association and the Pontifical Mission for Palestine, will speak on persecuted Christians in the Middle East at the Cathedral.
