Read Bishop Walkowiak’s letter to parishioners
(English | Español)
People of faith are committed to serving others in God’s love in healthcare, child welfare, migration and refugee resettlement, education, and more. Religious freedom protects the space in which we can continue to serve.
Join Catholics across the country to pray and act for the freedom to serve faithfully and with integrity. Learn more atwww.usccb.org/ReligiousFreedomWeek.
“We encourage people of faith to reflect on the importance of religious freedom so that we might have the space to carry out our mission of service and mercy, and we invite everyone to pray for our brothers and sisters who face intense persecution in other parts of the world.” – Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, chairman of the USCCB’s Committee for Religious Liberty, Archbishop of Louisville.
