Religious Freedom Week


The Diocese of Raleigh invites all to a Celebration of Freedom Mass with Bishop Zarama on Thursday, June 21 at 6:30 p.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 2817 Poole Rd. in Raleigh. A reception and picnic sponsored by the Knights of Columbus will follow the Mass.

This event is part of Religious Freedom Week, which takes place June 22 - 29, 2018. The theme this year is “Serving Others in God’s Love” and will celebrate the values of our faith with respect to the gift of life, marriage, conscience rights and many humanitarian concerns. 

During Religious Freedom Week the faithful are encouraged to pray for the intention of preserving and promoting religious freedom and to dedicate any of their regularly scheduled devotions, such as holy hours or the holy rosary, to this intention. For more information go to USCCB Religious Freedom Week.
