Statement of Archbishop Edwin O’Brien on Mayor Dixon’s Plea, Decision to Resign

The news of Mayor Dixon’s plea in court today and her decision to resign as Mayor of Baltimore is sad news for the mayor, her family and for our entire city. I would ask the Catholic community in Baltimore City and throughout this historic Archdiocese to pray for the mayor and her family at this difficult time, as well as for City Council President Rawlings-Blake, and to unite in prayer with our sisters and brothers from other faith families for the good of our beloved city.
