"This year's fortnight occurs just weeks before August 1, when the administration’s mandate coercing us to violate our deeply-held beliefs will be enforced against most religious non-profits. During the Fortnight the Supreme Court's decisions on the definition of marriage will likely be handed down as well. Those decisions could have a profound impact on religious freedom for generations to come.” Archbishop Lori will celebrate the fortnight’s opening Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Baltimore. Cardinal Donald Wuerl will celebrate the closing Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington.
