On Sunday, some Trinity parishioners will be joining people from all over the country at the People’s Climate March.
“As a person of faith, I believe we have a responsibility to care for, and be good stewards of all God's creation,” said Trinity parishioner Leah Kozak.
“Regardless of what one thinks about the realities of climate science, we can all typically agree that caring for the environment and taking care of each other are both morally and ethically important.”
More than 100,000 people are expected to attend the march, including secular and religious organizations.
The Episcopal Diocese of New York's commitee for the environment has encouraged Episcopal congregations to participate. There will be an interfaith service following the march at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
“When I look from the perspective of faith and at what religious communities have done in the past, it gives me hope,” said Drew Peterson-Roach, a Trinity parishioner.
The march will begin on September 21, 2014 at 11:30am in Columbus Circle. For more information about faith groups at the march, click here.
