Are you looking for a way to be involved in a movement to care for creation, create a just society, and speak out against the injustices of mountaintop removal? "The Cross in the Mountains: An Ecumenical Prayer Service to Renew Appalachian Communities” will take place in Whitesburg, Kentucky on Saturday, September 11. The prayer service is open to people of all faiths and will be a "modified version of the traditional Way of the Cross" as participants reflect on our responsibility as people of faith to build a just society and care for God's earth.
For more information on the prayer service, and to register, visit the Catholic Committee of Appalachia's website.
