ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Local Catholics will gather Wednesday at noon to take part in the Fortnight for Freedom Mass at the Cathedral Basilica on Lindell.

The Fortnight for Freedom is a two-week period of prayer and action to address what the Catholic Church calls challenges to life, marriage and religious liberty prompted by the new HHS contraceptive mandate and current trends in government and culture in redefining marriage.

St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson joins a national coalition of religious leaders in objecting to the Obama Administration’s latest version of its contraceptive mandate.

Archbishop Carlson says the Church will continue to seek relief from courts and Congress. He says America is at a crossroads and the Church is facing unprecedented challenges.

After the Mass on Wednesday, Catholic teens can head to the Archbishop’s resident for ice cream, while Catholic runners will lead a 5K run from the Cathedral Basilica to the Old Courthouse downtown.
