Maryland Catholic Conference

Who do we serve?

The parishioners of Resurrection parish, keeping them informed about state and local legislative issues surrounding respect life;  social and economic justice; and education, children, and families.

What do we do?

The Maryland Catholic Conference (MCC) advocates for the Church’s public policy positions before the Maryland General Assembly and other civil officials. On certain issues, we assist parishioners in contacting their representatives.

When do we do it?

One day during the state legislative session each year (usually in February), parishioners will be asked to contact their elected representatives about legislative issues on

which the Church or Archdiocese has taken a stand.


We occasionally coordinate postcard or e-postcard campaigns on these issues for parishioners interested in contacting their local representatives.

Where do we serve?

Aside from the annual visit to Annapolis, any other outreach is done at Resurrection or from people's homes.

How can I get involved?
