We are in the home stretch of the Fortnight for Freedom. The two-week period of prayer and action was spearheaded by the U.S. Bishops Conference as a response to a number of attacks on religious freedom in this country. Chief among them: the Department of Health and Human Services contraception mandate.
The mandate would force most religious organizations to provide contraception, sterilization and some abortion-inducing drugs in their employee health plans.
Here in the Diocese of Brooklyn, Catholics have been called into action. Among the events taking place, a series of voter registration drives at parishes across Brooklyn and Queens, including one on Sunday at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament in Bayside.
