Written by

Join the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois as we celebrate and promote our religious liberties. Religious Freedom Week is June 22-June 29, and the diocese will host speakers on its online platforms to discuss religious freedom, what issues will be coming to the forefront, and what you can do to fight back.

USCCB religious freedom artworkZach Wichmann, director of Government Relations for the Catholic Conference of Illinois, will discuss legislative issues pertaining to liberty at the Statehouse, including physician-assisted suicide and a new website so you can get involved and learn more. Dr. Calvin Bell, an emergency medicine physician in Springfield, will also discuss physician-assisted suicide from a medical perspective and arm you with critical information. Bishop Thomas John Paprocki will discuss why we need to continue to pray for authentic freedom.

We invite you to join us online that week. Watch and engage in these important discussions on the following platforms:
