UU’s Promote Climate Justice and
Celebrate the Earth During Visit of Pope Francis


After three months of UUSJ Green Activists planning, we celebrated Pope Francis's message on climate justice during his visit to Washington, DC. More than 130 persons joined the Inspirational Climate Ingathering at All Souls Church, Unitarian, on Sept. 23. More than 70 UUs walked 3-miles to the Interfaith Prayer Vigil opening ceremony of the overnight vigil where UU's led an hour with songs and meditation. The Climate Justice Rally began early Thursday morning, followed by Pope Francis's address to Congress, watched on jumbotrons. That Friday evening, Cedar Lane UU Church hosted an Earth Celebration, with music, dance, food and a mandala.
