Cardinal Gregory hosts environment town hall on Wednesday with State Secretary, legislators
Wilton Cardinal Gregory, Archbishop of Washington, is hosting our last town hall on Care for Our Common Home, this Wednesday, March 9, 7:30 p.m.
Panelists include Maryland Secretary of the Environment Ben Grumbles; State Senator Will Smith (Dist. 20-Montgomery County); Delegate Brooke Lierman (Dist. 46-Baltimore); and Jose Aguto, executive director of the Catholic Climate Covenant.
WJLA-7 reporter John Gonzalez will be the moderator. You can watch on YouTube or Facebook Live using the link below.
We are grateful to the Victory Noll sisters whose Small Grants Program helped make this and our earlier webinar with Archbishop Lori possible.
Finally, please continue to pray for our legislators this week, using this prayer (English and Spanish). There are many hearings and bills of interest and concern to our faith and vulnerable Marylanders throughout the week.

Sadly, the legislators voted generally along party lines to move the legislation forward, including a constitutional amendment on abortion. However, they told us they noticed!
Let's keep strong on advocating and supporting both women and their children:
