ANNAPOLIS, MD. — The Maryland Catholic Conference has canceled Catholic Lobby Night due to a winter storm warning. The event was scheduled to take place today from 2:30-9:00 p.m. in Annapolis. Lobby Night is an advocacy event that gives Catholic voters the opportunity to speak in person with their elected officials about issues.
“We appreciate all those who planned to attend but out of concern for safety, we feel this is the best decision,” Maryland Catholic Conference Executive Director Mary Ellen Russell said. “Forecasters are predicting that Anne Arundel County could see 4-6 inches of snow with the storm beginning early in the afternoon.”
Maryland Catholic Conference advocates for the Church’s public policy positions before the Maryland General Assembly and other civil officials.
The Conference represents all three dioceses with territory in the state – the Archdiocese of Baltimore, the Archdiocese of Washington, and the Diocese of Wilmington. Approximately 1.2 million Catholics live in Maryland.
