More than 100 Catholics in Maryland are walking from western Maryland to Baltimore City to promote religious freedom. The pilgrimage started this past Sunday and will end August 5th, at the Basilica in Baltimore. Father Jack Lombardi, Pastor of St. Peter Catholic Church in Hancock, tells WBAL Radio the walk is a way to show awareness about the First Amendment following the Department of Health and Human Services mandate that is now in effect requiring employers like the Catholic Church to offer insurance coverage to employees for things like abortion inducing drugs and contraception. The Catholic Church has been fighting against that measure.
