Interfaith Clergy Action in Support of Occupy Wall Street SF

Last week a group of Bay area clergy gathered to plan an Interfaith Clergy Action in Support of Occupy Wall Street SF.

WHEN: Monday, October 24, 2011 – 10:30 am
WHERE: Gather at Justin Herman Plaza (Steuart and Market Streets in San Francisco)
WHO: Clergy and religious leaders in identifying clerical clothing

“The event will begin with prayer and ritual to rededicate ourselves to justice and prepare ourselves spiritually. We will then walk to the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank (101 Market St.) to join in solidarity with “Occupy Wall Street – San Francisco” where we will offer our blessings and commitments of support as part of that witness for justice. We will then have an opportunity to go in smaller groups to key sites throughout the financial district for prayer.”

Rev. Lois Mueller (MDiv, 1997), pastor at Plymouth United Church of Christ, who called the meeting, also helped to organize the 2003 protest against the war in Iraq. In 2003 clergy united across the Golden Gate bridge, creating one line from Marin County to San Francisco.

Other PSR Alums at the meeting included Sandy Gess (MDiv, 1976), Joellynn Monahan (MDiv, 2003), Bea Morris (MDiv 2002), Carolyn Collins (MDiv, 1997), Bob Howell (MDiv, 2000), and Eileen Lindsay (MDiv 1980).
