On Friday, September 27, 2019 just before 1pm, a group of Anglicans met up and headed over to Vancouver City Hall to show their support for the Climate Strike organized primarily by students and the younger members of the Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley communities.
The Reverend Margaret Marquardt, chair of Anglicans for Eco-Justice, aka the Diocesan Eco-Justice Unit organized a group with the assistance of the Reverend Peggy Trendell-Jensen of St. Clement’s, Lynn Valley and others.
Following the event, Reverend Marquardt reported,
“It was a blessed day as we joined youth in calling for the care of God’s creation. It is estimated that there were 100,000 of us on the walk for the climate. It was truly a privilege to be with you who are speaking truth and leading us to action"
