Chapel Blocks Path of Gas Pipeline

The July 16, 2017 Washington Post ran an article about Catholic nuns in Lancaster, Pa., creating a chapel in the path of a proposed pipeline. They aim to protect their land from a gas company preparing to exercise the right of eminent domain.

The cause has Mennonite supporters as well. At a climate justice gathering at the Mennonite Church USA’s convention in Orlando in early July, Malinda Harnish Clatterbuck, one of the founders of Lancaster Against Pipelines, shared about her efforts to resist the plans to build new pipelines carrying fracked gas. Clatterbuck is associate pastor for children and youth at Community Mennonite Church in Lancaster, PA.

“I was so impressed and encouraged by her courage in non-violent direct action,” commented Ray Martin, founding donor of the Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions.
