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?
For one afternoon/evening each year during the state legislative session (usually in February), we invite parishioners to go to Annapolis to personally speak with their elected representatives about legislative issues on
which the Church or Archdiocese has taken a stand.
We occasionally coordinate 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?
We are looking for someone to serve as Resurrection's Parish Legislative Ambassador (PLA). It would be a good opportunity for anyone interested in politics and/or Catholic Social Teaching. Contact Barbara Watson: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parishioners can also register on the conference's website to receive updates on issues of concern involving potential legislation. Click here to sign up.
