In the Gospel reading this morning, Jesus seeks out four apostles: Peter, Andrew, James, and John. They are busy about their business, fishing for a living. Jesus calls them and says, "Come ye after Me, and I will make you to be fishers of men." ~Matthew 4:19
Our 3rd Annual Pro-Life Symposium is tomorrow. We will have Steve Wagner from Justice for All to speak to us about how to speak to others about the issue of abortion and how to be more convincing in a respectful way without compromising on the importance of the right to life from conception to natural death. This is important work. He is literally able to save lives with the gifts God has given Him. He was called and he answered with a yes. Local exhibitors and pro-life champions, who will sit on our panel discussion, have also answered the call and will be there.
If you are receiving and reading this email right now, consider this your calling. I am personally asking each and every one of you right now to follow us, to follow Jesus in the important, hard, frustrating work to change our culture of death into a culture of LIFE.
What are your gifts God may be calling you to share in the pro-life movement? Do you have work experience, a talent, or a passion God gave you that He can use to save lives? Is there something you are doing tomorrow that is more important than following Jesus and His call to you to help save unborn children from the slaughter of abortion?
Maryland is on the verge of making sure that abortion is accessible to all of her residents forever by putting it into our state constitution. We must act now. We cannot afford to sit on the sidelines any longer. This is our Roe v. Wade moment. Don't let it pass you by.
Come see what Jesus has in store for you. Accept the grace He is offering you at this very moment to say yes and to join us at St. Joseph Catholic Church tomorrow for our third annual pro-life symposium. It is completely free. Lunch and breakfast included. Childcare provided. Teens WELCOME as we have a representative from Students for Life who will be attending and is ready to join hands with them in this fight.
You can register here. https://www.somdpro-life.com/3rd-annual-symposium
And please, spread the word. Invite others to follow Jesus and be fishers of men.

Election day is tomorrow! If you have not been able to make a decision on certain candidates, we are updating and merging all of the results of our two rounds of surveys (primary election and general election), since some candidates from the primary may not have realized we were asking them to complete the survey a second time. Please note in the first table that "Antonio Campbell" in the table is "Tony Campbell" running for MD State Senate.
Our questions, mirroring those asked by Maryland Right to Life, are here (click each photo to read the questions in their entirety):
Still need more information?
Election day is approaching, this coming Tuesday, November 6. Perhaps the most heated and intense mid-term elections in modern history (or ever?) and the stakes for Maryland have never been higher. We surveyed our local and state-level candidates again, as we did for the primary election, and have compiled their results here on our blog and social media accounts. Check our Facebook page often this weekend for relevant voter education.
Our second round of surveys yielded few results. The two Libertarian candidates for Senate and Congress let us know how they feel about protecting the unborn and the elderly, infirm, and disabled. A newcomer to the County Commissioner Race let his opinion on the Right to Life be known, and a MD State Senate and MD State Delegate candidate each weighed in on their intent for pro-life laws. See our table below:

Trent Horn was our very first speaker to join us at our Annual Pro-Life Symposium here in Southern Maryland. He is a Catholic apologist that frequently makes the case for the unborn and helps us to do the same.
