Annual Conference

October 5, 2013 @ 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

 

Our 2013 Annual Meeting and Conference in
Harrisburg was a Great Success!

This is the state’s largest gathering for people of faith concerned about climate change—a time for interfaith worship, workshops, resource gathering, and networking with others who are responding to climate change as a moral issue. Thanks to everyone who made it such a great success.
