Interfaith Candlelight Vigil for Climate Crisis and Pope’s Visit
Join us on the Taos Plaza as the Pope prepares to testify before Congress about the climate crisis on behalf of all faiths. This is a time to pray together for wisdom for all of our leaders and ourselves as we commit to actions for life that create a just economy and address the critical challenge of climate change and climate justice. September 23 is Yom Kippur in the Jewish tradition and important Holy Day of fasting and call to atonement. As we pray we pray for conversion and hope we will be mindful of our Jewish brothers and sisters praying on this Holy Day.
