adorers’ witness

Last Sunday over 300 people joined the Adorers of the Blood of Christ, a Catholic order of Sisters, at an outdoor chapel on the Adorer’s land in Columbia, PA..   That land also lies in the path of a proposed natural gas pipeline that will extent 183 miles across Pennsylvania.

Local residents have protested the proposed pipeline for the last three years.  The Adorers’ neighbors have also refused to sell their land.  Williams Partners  – the owners directing the project – filed an emergency order two weeks ago to seize the land, but a US district judge ruled against the request.  The Adorers hope the chapel’ can draw people to prayer and reflection about just and holy use of the land.’
