Coming Together in Faith on Climate

Coming Together in Faith on Climate

Climate change is profoundly impacting God’s creation and people, with the poorest and most vulnerable bearing the greatest consequences. The effects of increasing droughts, floods, wildfires, extreme weather and rising sea levels can be measured in lost lives, higher food prices, poorer health and billions of dollars in disaster relief. Our faith demands that we act now.

Pope Francis will be in the United States September 22-27, 2015, visiting Washington DC, New York and Philadelphia. In Washington DC, on September 23rd, the Pope will meet with President Obama, visit with U.S. Bishops (St. Matthews), and hold a Canonization Mass (Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception). On Thursday September 24, Pope Francis will give a historic address to a joint session of the U.S. Congress and visit St. Patrick’s Catholic Church and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington.

Join the events and support the Pope’s call to climate action:

An evening of celebration at Washington National Cathedral supporting Pope Francis's call for action on climate change - Thursday September 24, from 7:30 to 9:00pm.

Join faith leaders at the National Cathedral in Washington DC, on Thursday September 24, from 7:30 to 9:00pm for an evening of celebration, prayer, praise and song to inspire faith and climate leaders and extend Pope Francis’ call for action on climate change and creation care.
