We express our profound sadness and offer our prayers for all whose lives have been so dramatically affected by the mass shooting at Pulse in Orlando last weekend. We share with you the statement from the National Council of Churches and a renewed call for addressing the scourge of gun violence in our country.

Through the Public Witness Ministry of the Pennsylvania Council of Churches we…

  • empower people of faith, through education and skill-building, to make a difference for the common good in the public square;
  • advocate on behalf of the Council’s member church bodies before Pennsylvania’s legislative and administrative branches of government.

Please join us in helping to build a more just society!

Public Witness is one of several ministries of the Pennsylvania Council of Churches. To learn more about the Council, visit the main website at www.pachurches.org.
