Baltimore-area Catholics who support the state’s marriage equality law will meet at Goucher College, Towson, on Saturday, June 9, 1-4 p.m. to discuss ways to prevent the law from being repealed in a potential referendum in November.
Sister Jeannine Gramick, a Catholic nun, will be the main speaker for the day where Catholics will discuss how the Catholic tradition of justice supports the idea of marriage equality for same-gender couples. Sister Gramick, a Maryland resident, has been a Catholic advocate for gay and lesbian equality and justice for more than 40 years.
The event is being sponsored by the Catholics for Marriage Equality Maryland coalition, which is comprised of faithful Catholic individuals and organizations, including: Baltimore Catholic Parishioners for Marriage Equality, Dignity/Washington, New Ways Ministry, Quixote Center/Catholics Speak Out, Thomas More Project, Viva House, Women-Church-Baltimore, and WATER—Women’s Alliance for Theology, Ethics & Ritual.
In addition to Sister Gramick, the program will include a panel of speakers, including gay and lesbian people, family members and community leaders.
