Catholics nationwide preparing 'Fortnight for Freedom' events

Catholic News Service has a great article on the nationwide "Fortnight for Freedom" as all Catholics in America muster their energies to stand up for religious freedom:

In the Oakland Diocese, visit this website to learn what is going on in the San Francisco Bay Area:

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), concerned over the threats to religious freedom both at home and abroad, has called on all dioceses, parishes and other Catholic institutions to participate in a “Fortnight for Freedom,” June 21-July 4. This will be a 14-day period of prayer, education and action by American Catholics in support of religious freedom. All Catholics in the Diocese of Oakland are invited to join with Catholic faithful across our nation during this special time of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action to emphasize both our Christian and American Heritage of liberty. Below, you will find informational links intended to help your parish or group plan events and participate as fully as possible in this national event.
