Religious Freedom Week
Beginning June 22, the Feast of St Thomas More and St. John Fisher, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops celebrates Religious Freedom Week. All people desire to know their Creator. All people have a natural impulse to seek the good and to live in accordance with that good. All people can flourish when they pursue the truth about God and respond to the truth. Religious freedom means that all people have the space to flourish. Religious freedom is both an American value and an important part of Catholic teaching on human dignity. When we promote religious freedom, we promote the common good and thus strengthen the life of our nation and community of nations.
