ecoAmerica Gets a Wave from Pope Francis at St. Matthew’s Cathedral

By path2positive

The ecoAmerica office was gifted a special treat yesterday as Pope Francis made his way to St. Matthew Cathedral after speaking to President Obama at the White House. Addressing a crowd of Catholic Bishops, Pope Francis spoke for over an hour at the parish where President Kennedy's funeral service was famously held decades ago. 

Blessed Tomorrow welcomed an interfaith coalition of climate leaders to our office in Washington D.C., conveniently located just a few hundred feet from St. Matthew's Cathedral door. The faith leaders, inspired by Pope Francis climate message, shared their imperative to act for the climate, only stopping to watch Pope Francis enter and exit the historical cathedral.

See our exclusive footage of Pope Francis historic visit to the U.S. below and see extensive interviews and commentary from attendees. Additionally, see the full video of the Coming Together in Faith Celebration at the National Cathedral, as well as a video from Friday morning's Coming Together in Faith and Climate Conference, where climate leaders gathered at the Washington National Cathedral to share experiences and ideas for building support for climate solutions in our congregations, communities and nation. Click the link to learn more!
