FRIDAY — AUGUST 26, 2016 — VERPLANCK, NY
Emergency Call to Prayer – Spectra’s 42″ pipeline is being pulled through the Hudson River this week. Poisonus fracked gas will be flowing through it by November. Many of our elected officials seem indifferent to the risk we face.
Please join us for AN INTERFAITH PRAYER VIGIL – bring with you whatever you’d like to share… a prayer, poem, song, your anger, pain, expectations, disappointment, wishes, grief, hopes… We will gather in front of St Patrick’s Church in Verplank and process down to the river via Highland Ave and 9th Street where the vigil will take place.
Please consider carpooling and find nearby street parking.
