Who We Are

WHO WE ARE

We, the Murphy Initiative, invite you to join us in living the joy of the Gospel by working to create a just and peaceful world…

  • to be a vehicle for justice and peace in our city, state, and country
  • to be the voice of the voiceless and an active voice in Baltimore and beyond
  • to open opportunities for education, dialogue, action, and advocacy at various levels
  • to draw on people’s gifts, talents, and different backgrounds through interfaith relations to build up “our common home”

 

We believe the time is now to dream new dreams, make new connections, and put faith into action with a passionate pursuit to create a world beyond violence so that “all may be one.”

Live the joy of the Gospel with us.
