Let's witness to Freedom during - THE FORTNIGHT FOR FREEDOM

Once again, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is encouraging Catholics across our country to enter into the period of the two weeks leading up to the Fourth of July with a strong focus on prayer, education, and reflection on our first freedom, freedom of religion.

Join us June 21 - July 4!


Scripture clearly says that God wants to have an intimate relationship with each of us.

Yet it can be challenging to feel close to one we can’t always see. It may help to remember that Jesus is a living person, still accessible and available. “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things which you have not known” (Jeremiah 33:33). See the attached document.
