Please come and join MPC friends in the March as we walk together in Faith, Love and Pride. For the last two years, the FCBWP has been 300 participants strong! It is humbling and empowering to experience a rousing welcome from the parade route as faith communities step out boldly to support the full inclusion of LGBTQ+ folk.
Volunteer for the Festival on Sunday! Talk with festival goers and get to know folks from the FCBWP. Spend a day in Faith, Love and Pride.
More details will follow as we approach the Parade and Festival. To walk, volunteer or ask questions, see Donna Mistr; she will be wearing Ally and FCBWP buttons from now until the end of June! Text or call her at 410-952-9365, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
