‘Rally for Religious Freedom’ planned Saturday in Sulphur

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

The 2nd Annual Rally for Religious Freedom is in Sulphur this weekend.

It's the second year for the rally that promotes the practice of the freedom of religion.

Father Eddie Richard, from Our Lady of Prompt Succor in Sulphur, said the rally has a list of keynote speakers and entertainment that will get people talking and thinking about religious resources in the area.

"We're going from nine to one this year, where as last year was just two hours and so we're going to have more musical entertainment and more speakers. The speakers only speak a few minutes but it's just like a rally to inspire and get people talking to one another and seeing what's out there, what resources are available for learning more about this," Richard said.

The rally is set for 9 a.m. Saturday in Sulphur's Heritage Square.
