“IN THE GENIAL ATMOSPHERE OF LIBERTY [THE CHURCH] BLOSSOMS LIKE A ROSE.” – CARDINAL JAMES GIBBONS, ADDRESS UPON TAKING POSSESSION OF SANTA MARIA IN TRASTEVERE, MARCH 25, 1887

Religious freedom allows the Church, and all religious communities, to live out their faith in public and to serve the good of all. Twice a year, the Catholic Church in the United States intensifies its efforts around this crucial topic: during Religious Freedom Week, between June 22, Feast of St. John Fisher and Thomas More, and June 29, Solemnity of St. Peter and Paul, and on the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus ChristKing of the Universe, or Christ the King on November 20. With these celebrations in mind, the Archdiocese of San Antonio has developed a dedicated section on its website with resources that will allow people to praylearn, and act on those dates and throughout the year in defense of what the US Bishops call “Our First, Most Cherished Liberty.”
