The Maryland Catholic Conference, Annapolis-based legislative lobbying arm of the state’s Catholic bishops, is inviting young adults to become more active in exercising their political muscle within the scope of the Catholic faith.
“Faith and Politics Bootcamp,” a new pilot parish program that will soon be launched, will involve young adults in raising awareness within their communities about key issues concerning the sanctity of life, protecting the family, supporting immigrants, caring for the poor and more.
Potential candidates should be social media-savvy, have their own transportation, be energetic about Church teachings and public policy, and have the recommendation of their pastors.
A series of informal pizza-and-beer information sessions will be held in June to provide more details. Register by calling 410-269-1155 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information sessions, 7 p.m.
June 13 – Maryland Catholic Conference, Annapolis
June 17 – St. Mary, Rockville
June 18 – Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, Homeland
June 19 – Ss. Philip and James, Homewood
