This Winter Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light welcomed an intern into our community to help us in our work for Climate Justice. Asteri Aliaj, is a student at Bucknell University studying environmental engineering. She has been involved in faith and climate organizations including Sunrise and Bread for the World. Asteri is an advocate for food, climate and social justice!
The work she has done for PA IPL will help us launch several initiatives in 2021 and reach out to new congregations and communities. Next semester she will be be missed while she is away studying at Duke University but we look forward to her return to PA soon.
This Spring and Fall we hope to connect with new interns to carry on her work and support the growth of local chapters. You can find the Google Form to apply for an internship here and on our Facebook page.

A Very Merry Christmas to All!
Wishing all those who celebrate Christmas or Theophany on the 6th or 7th of January, a very happy and healthy Christmas!
The beautiful faith traditions of the Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Armenian Apostolic, and Coptic traditions are celebrated this week. Let us not forget the great diversity of belief that exists within our community and around the world.
“On this day Thou hast appeared unto the whole world, and Thy light, O Sovereign Lord, is signed on us who sing Thy praise and chant with knowledge: Thou hast now come, Thou hast appeared, O Thou Light unapproachable.”
We seek candidates who excel in communication and development, build strong relationships, are results-oriented, and are excellent problem solvers. This is an ideal opportunity for individuals who are passionate for small nonprofit development with a connection to Climate Change/Climate Justice.
From all of us at PA IPL we wish you and your family a very merry Christmas!

Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light is a community of congregations, faith-based organizations, and individuals of faith responding to climate change as an ethical and moral issue, through advocacy, education, energy conservation, energy efficiency, stewardship, and the use and promotion of clean, renewable energy.
