Maryland Govenor to Speak at Symposium

New Ways Ministry is proud to announce that Maryland's Catholic Governor Martin O'Malley will be one of hundreds of Catholics participating in our Seventh National Symposium, From Water to Wine:  Lesbian/Gay Catholics and Relationships, March 15th-17th, Baltimore, Maryland!

Governor O'Malley, who has supported Maryland's marriage equality bill, will be part of this grand gathering of pro-LGBT Catholics on Friday, March 16th. Spread the word! Bring a friend! Please note that registration for Friday only is an option.

The latest news from Maryland is that the marriage equality bill just passed the state's House of Delegates!  Its passage in the Senate is virtually guaranteed since it passed there last year easily, and no Senator has announced a vote change. Of course, Governor O'Malley has pledged to sign it.  You can read more about this recent news on New Ways Ministry's blog, Bondings 2.0.  For a news summary of the bill's passage, click here. For New Ways Ministry's response to the passage, click here.

Don't miss the chance to celebrate Maryland's becoming the eighth state to enact marriage equality with our state's Catholic governor at the Symposium!

Because of the postal holiday for Presidents' Day, the regular registration fee has been extended to the following day, February 21st. Information is on the attached brochure or click here to register.

Don't miss this historic opportunity to meet and thank Governor O'Malley, to network with other pro-LGBT Catholics, to hear dynamic and inspiring speakers, and to celebrate LGBT equality!
