FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On Monday, June 25, 2012, join Relevant Radio as they broadcast special LIVE coverage during the CatholicTV Network’s Fortnight for Freedom Event hosted by Cardinal Seán O’Malley, Archbishop of Boston
WATERTOWN, MA (June 18, 2012) – The US Bishops have called for “Fortnight for Freedom,” a 14-day period of prayer, education and action in support of religious freedom, from June 21-July 4. The bishops of the United States have recommended that Catholics focus "all the energies the Catholic community can muster" to heightening people’s awareness of the most cherished liberty: Religious Freedom.
In support of this call to action the CatholicTV Network has arranged a special hour-long discussion with Cardinal Seán O’Malley and a group of young Catholics in a live forum on the evening of Monday, June 25, 2012 from 8-9PM ET. The event will include a discussion panel, and will be moderated by ClearVoice's John Monahan. This LIVE event will be broadcasted on Relevant Radio.
Now in its 12th year, Relevant Radio is “Talk Radio for Catholic Life”, broadcasting 24/7 on 34 stations in 13 states, three of which are in the top 16 markets nationwide. Relevant Radio has the potential to reach more than 28 million people, and extends across the world over the internet. Relevant Radio owns and operates 13 stations and produces 60 hours of original programming. Relevant Radio exists to assist the Church in the New Evangelization by providing relevant programming through media platforms to help people bridge the gap between faith and everyday life.
The fourteen days from June 21—the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More—to July 4, Independence Day, are dedicated to this “Fortnight for Freedom”. Culminating on Independence Day, this special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action emphasizes Christian and American heritage of liberty.
“This summer, the bishops of the United States have recommended that we focus "all the energies the Catholic community can muster" to heightening people’s awareness of our most cherished liberty: Religious Freedom. When our freedoms are threatened, we need to speak frankly and with courage and now is such a time with the help of Relevant Radio,” said President of the CatholicTV Network Father Robert Reed.
Throughout the two week period called for by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Father Robert Reed, president of CatholicTV will offer a daily reflection on the theme of religious freedom in a series of Blinks.
Coverage will also be available on CatholicTV and CatholicTV.com. Comments and questions will be addressed LIVE during the event on CatholicTV’s Facebook. Viewers can also join the conversation by tweeting @CatholicTV. The event will be simulcast on Relevant Radio across the US and on WQOM in Boston, MA.
