Purpose Statement: We of various faith communities assemble to pray as residents of the mountains. Our communities live with fear caused by the devastation of extractive industries. We pray for renewal of human and ecological communities throughout the mountains and for alternative work to bring greater diversity and choice for employment and energy sources. We pray by raising the Cross of Christ to remind us that Earth belongs to God by creation and we are designated as stewards of creation.
In 2010, CCA’s Kentucky State Chapter sponsored the first “Cross in the Mountains” ecumenical Stations of the Cross prayer service. Click here to watch a 6 minute video about it.
On April 18th, 2015, CCA’s West Virginia state chapter co-sponsored the event with Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition (OVEC), Christians for the Mountains, and WV Council of Churches. Click here to see pictures.
