The Central Maryland Ecumenical Council is a Christian community seeking to make the "Beloved Community" both visible and real.
We seek to do this advocating on behalf of any environmental, racial, social, and/or economic issue which does not affirm the imago dei of all persons regardless of race, gender, ethnic background, or socio-economic status. We invite you to learn more about what it means to be a member of the Central Maryland Ecumenical Council community.

These acts do and should continue to shock us and the escalating violence against the foundations of our pluralistic democracy should alarm all people of good will.
