Honoring St. Thomas More on his feast day

First slide

A woman venerates a relic of St. Thomas More, patron saint of the Arlington Diocese, at the Cathedral of St. Thomas More in Arlington June 22, his feast day.

June 21 marked the start of Fortnight for Freedom, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' campaign in defense of religious freedom.

Other relics of St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher (not shown here), on loan from Stonyhurst College in England, will be available for veneration at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception following the closing Mass in Washington July 4 at noon.
