Moral Action on Climate Vigil

On Wednesday, September 23, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Unitarian and Buddhist voices united in support of Pope Francis’ message on “Care of Our Common Home.”

Gathering on the steps of First & Central Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, faith leaders offered reflections from their diverse religious traditions on our shared responsibility to address the causes and impacts of climate change; to care for Creation and for each other.

Similar vigils were scheduled around the country on the eve of Pope Francis’ historic address to Congress.

Senator Tom Carper sent a statement of support and Senator Chris Coons delivered his own message of appreciation and respect, announcing that the day before, a bill had been introduced to support clean and renewable energy and reduce fossil fuel production. See links to local coverage:
