Baltimore archbishop William E. Lori is set to co-host an event in Baltimore Wednesday night to oppose Maryland's new same-sex marriage law.
"It is a way for the faith community to gather together," said Kathy Dempsey, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Catholic Conference. "It is a time of fellowship."
Dempsey said the invitation-only event is free of charge, and she expects about 200 people. "Our campaign is not about raising millions and millions from Hollywood and Madison Avenue," she said. Derek McCoy, the head of the Maryland Marriage Alliance, is also co-hosting the event.
