In his 2015 encyclical Laudato Si, Pope Francis calls on all people to “care for our common home,” reminding us that “the poor and the earth are crying out.”

There is an urgent need to promote a clean energy economy that would benefit all of us and protect the environment of our shared planet. People from diverse faith groups will come together with a common concern for the impact of climate change on us, on certain sectors of the economy, and on the poor and future generations

Sunday, January 22, from 5:00 to 5:20 PM
at the center section of the Brooklyn Bridge

for a short, peaceful candlelight vigil to express our intention to work for a clean energy economy that benefits all and addresses inequality and injustice and in recognition that the protection of the earth is our sacred responsibility.

We invite you to join us in collective strength and prayer as we prepare to face the challenges ahead.

If you can, bring a battery-operated candle or tealight. .

We will pray with our lights of hope.
