The Fortnight for Freedom (June 21-July 4) - The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is calling upon U.S. Catholics to take time in the two weeks leading up to the fourth of July to reflect on and pray for the preservation of religious liberty in the U.S. The fortnight was initiated following the imposition of the HHS contraceptive mandate. The period of reflection has continued since then due to increasing concerns about restrictions on religious liberty in the U.S., particularly those that have the potential to impact the Church's ability to address the needs of the poor and vulnerable.   Below is a prayer for religious liberty.

Events Elsewhere – 1) Picnic at St. George parish in Linn June 22.  2)  125th anniversary celebration at Oklahoma Church of Christ June 22, 10:00 a.m.  Everyone invited.  For info, see poster in back of church or call 573-897-2657.  3) Chicken dinner & fixins’ July 5 at St. James UCC in Morrison, serving 3:30-?  For info, 573-294-6684.

O God Our Creator,
from your provident hand we have received
our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
You have called us as your people and given us
the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God,
and your Son, Jesus Christ.
Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit,
you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world,
bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel
to every corner of society.
We ask you to bless us
in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty.
Give us the strength of mind and heart
to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened;
give us courage in making our voices heard
on behalf of the rights of your Church
and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.
Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father,
a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters
gathered in your Church
in this decisive hour in the history of our nation,
so that, with every trial withstood
and every danger overcome—
for the sake of our children, our grandchildren,
and all who come after us—
this great land will always be “one nation, under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
