       The U.S. Catholic Bishops called for a "Fortnight for Freedom," a two-week period from June 21st  to July 4th -- beginning with the feasts of St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher and ending with Independence Day -- to focus "all the energies the Catholic community can muster" for religious liberty. Please check the bulletin board at the rear of Church for details of the public forum on June 27th and the morning Pray Service at St. Joseph on June 30th.

For more information, contact the diocesan Office for Social Concerns at (614) 241-2540 or go online at http://www.colsdioc.org/Offices/SocialConcernsOfficefor/ReligiousLiberty.aspx

    

     On Tuesday, July 3rd we will celebrate our 5:30 p.m. Mass with a devotional Prayer Hour that will include Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction. Let us all pray for religious freedom as we celebrate the 236th birthday of our nation.

A PRAYER FOR OUR NATION

God our Father, Giver of life, we entrust the United States of America to Your loving care.
You are the rock on which this nation was founded.
You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your
people.
Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation´s
leaders. Open their minds to the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom.
Remind Your people that true happiness is rooted in
seeking and doing Your will.
Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our land, grant us the courage to reject the "culture of death."  
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.     Amen
