Welcome To Maryland<br />Maryland is a U.S. state located in the Mid Atlantic region of the Southern United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia to its south and west; Pennsylvania to its north; and Delaware to its east.

Nevertheless, Parliament later reversed that policy and discouraged the practice of Catholicism in Maryland.

The Islamic community in Maryland is small but it is growing, especially in the Baltimore area.<br />
