A local pilgrimage in solidarity with the upcoming Climate Change Talks in Paris

In preparation for United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris (Nov. 30- Dec 11, 2015), people of faith from around the world are gathering for pilgrimage, praying that global leaders willhave the courage, imagination, and generosity to work through difficulties and bring the world to a meaningful climate agreement.  On Sunday, December 6th, St. Ignatius parishioners have the opportunity to join in an interfaith pilgrimage in Portland from 1:45 – 4:30 pm as we continue to embrace our call to work for ecological justice together.  The pilgrimage begins at Congregation Havurah Shalom in NW Portland and ends at the First Unitarian Church at SW 12th and Main.  Pilgrims will stop at 7-10 houses of worship along the route for a short prayer, blessing, hymn, or other spiritual practice that shares the host congregation's perspective on climate justice.  Gathered in prayer, pilgrims will give voice to their shared hopes for a strong, moral response to the climate crisis by the delegates meeting in Paris to finalize a replacement treaty for the Kyoto Protocol.  Although this is an interfaith event, the Pilgrimage is inspired by Pope Francis and Laudato Si and an affiliated event with of Our Voices, a global movement seeking to bring faith to the climate talks (  Contact Jess Ingman ( by Dec. 3rd if you would like to take public transit or carpool with other parishioners from St. Ignatius to participate in the pilgrimage.
