Fortnight for Freedom 2013

 Why a Second Fortnight? The reasons have been well summarized by Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, chairman of the USCCB Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty:
“The need for prayer, education, and action in defense of religious liberty has never been greater. This year's fortnight occurs just weeks before August 1, when the administration’s mandate coercing us to violate our deeply-held beliefs will be enforced against most religious non-profits. During the Fortnight the Supreme Court's decisions on the definition of marriage will likely be handed down as well. Those decisions could have a profound impact on religious freedom for generations to come.”
In union with the Diocese of La Crosse's efforts during the Fortnight (for a full schedule, click here), we will have two events during this Fortnight:

End of life decisions concern us all.  That is why the St. Gianna Unit Council of Catholic Women of Sts. Peter & Paul Parish have invited Peggy Hamill, state director of Pro-Life Wisconsin, to speak about the life-protective document "Protective Power of Attorney for Health Care" that her organization has created.  No registration is required.  All are welcome to this free presentation:
Wednesday, June 26th, 6:00 pm  
Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church

A Holy Hour for Religious Liberty celebrated in the parishes by the deacons of the Diocese of La Crosse. Saints Peter and Paul will have a holy hour on June 27th at 7:00 PM.

Please join us in prayer as we implore God to convert our nation.
