Call to Fortnight For
Defend the God-given right
Bishop James Conley, apostolic administrator of the Denver Archdiocese, called all faithful to join a national initiative in defense of religious freedom through prayer, education and public action.
The archdiocese has planned a series of events from June 21-July 4 in conjunction with the U.S. bishop's two-week initiative called "Fortnight for Freedom." The initiative was prompted by threats to the Church’s religious freedom, most notably the federal Health and Human Services mandate that requires employers to cover contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs that Catholics and others find morally objectionable. The mandate has drawn heavy criticism and the bishops have warned it could force Catholic schools, hospitals and charitable agencies to close.
