Walking With Purpose

The St. Mary’s Pastoral Council is excited to announce a series of presentations on the Seven Principles of our Church’s Social Teachings as promulgated by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). The Council worked with the Archdiocese of Baltimore to find Catholic speakers who have great understanding and knowledge of the topics to be shared. The first presentation on Life and Dignity of the Human Person was on October 18 at St. John Neumann in Seelos Hall beginning at 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm.

In today’s politically charged environment, there are many opinions being shared and placed before us to ponder and consider. The opinions that we hear about and that get noticed are not always those that were developed by our church based on biblical principles and the words of our Lord; it can be confusing and hard to understand sometimes what is right and what is wrong for us as Catholics. Please come join us and learn more about these dynamic topics from the perspective of the theology of our faith and as expressed by the USCCB. 

The seven principles: Life & Dignity of the Human Person; Call to Family, Community, and Participation; Rights and Responsibilities; Option for the Poor and Vulnerable; The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers; Solidarity; and Care for God’s Creation.
