The CatholicTV Network will participate in the Fortnight for Freedom with special programming rom June 21 to July 4 to rally support for the protection of religious freedom in the United States. Throughout the two week period called for by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), Father Robert Reed, president of CatholicTV will offer a daily reflection on the theme of religious freedom. Called "Our First Most Cherished Liberty", the reflections are drawn from the USCCB's A Statement on Religious Liberty and each closes with a prayer.
