Freedom Sunday 2023 can be celebrated any time! On this day, God’s people join together to proclaim freedom for all, especially those who are enslaved and exploited.

Some faith communities will continue our tradition of celebrating the last Sunday in February. This year that date is February 26.

We believe that now, more than ever, we as the Church need to be reminded of our critical role in working to prevent human trafficking and bring freedom to all people.

If you are part of the Catholic community: consider observing Freedom Sunday on the Sunday closest to February 10th, in honor of Saint Bakhita. Contact us for resources.
