Launch of PA IPL Southwest PA Chapter

PA IPL is launching the Southwest PA Chapter TODAY at 5:00pm! We look forward to seeing everyone at the City of Pittsburgh Rhododendron Shelter in the Highland Park neighborhood to unite existing PA IPL PGH Chapter members with new PA IPL members from around the region.

We are basing the SW PA Chapter Launch on three fundamental concepts:

  1. We are spiritual beings with ties to the earth.
  2. We must recognize this and the impact that we have on the earth and other human beings, particularly those in Climate Justice Communities.
  3. As people of faith, we must organize, plan and complete projects that will reduce our impact and increase equity across the Commonwealth.

Highlights of this meeting will include a potluck dinner and a Cosmic Walk. Inspired by Thomas Berry’s work, Sister Miriam Therese MacGillis, created the Cosmic Walk ritual at Genesis Farm, New Jersey, in the mid-1980’s. Thomas Berry was a monk, cultural historian, author, teacher, and mystic who linked spirituality with ecology.

PA IPL will provide refreshing water to drink. This will be a Zero Waste Event! Please consider bringing your own plates, knives, forks, and spoons to help us achieve our goal. PA IPL will provide compostable tableware for those who cannot bring their own. New and existing members should bring their favorite dishes to share in this opportunity for increased fellowship. Portable restrooms are available at the Shelter.

Bring your friends, family, congregational members to experience the Cosmic Walk and build our PA IPL SW PA Chapter!
