All are invited for the Mass, which will be celebrated at 12:05 p.m. Wednesday, July 2, at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, Lindell Boulevard and Newstead Avenue in the Central West End. After Mass, Archbishop Carlson will host a social at his residence for young people.

Fortnight for Freedom Mass makes note of critical need for religious freedom

On the eve of Independence Day, Catholics in the Archdiocese of St. Louis put aside their holiday planning to pray for the protection of the thing the Fourth of July celebrates — freedom.

Bishops' Fortnight for Freedom is a call to prayer, action for issues of life, religious liberty and marriage

Mimi McDonough has hopes that her five children will be able to freely practice their Catholic faith, just as she has.

That's why the member of St. Joseph Parish in Cottleville has become involved in her parish's efforts to join in the Call to Prayer, the U.S. bishops' nationwide initiative to pray and act for the protection of life, religious liberty and marriage. All three issues have faced significant challenges within the current government and culture.

Fortnight for Freedom Mass to involve ice cream for youths

A special archdiocesan event being planned next month to promote the issues of life, marriage and religious liberty also will involve ice cream for young people.

Yes, ice cream.
