2022 Religious Freedom Week: 6/22-6/29

This year, Religious Freedom Week’s theme is Life and Dignity for All. Religious freedom allows the Church, and all religious communities, to live out their faith in public and to serve the good of all.  Beginning June 22-June 29, all Catholics are encouraged to pray, reflect, and act to promote religious freedom.
