Nuns to Dedicate Outdoor Chapel Built In the Path of Proposed Pipeline

CNN’s Amanda Watts and Paige Levin report that Catholic nuns in Pennsylvania dedicated an open-air chapel on Sunday to block the construction of a natural gas pipeline. A grass-roots group called Lancaster Against Pipelines backed the Susquehanna Valley Nuns, whose property would be bisected by the pipeline. Mark Clatterbuck of Lancaster Against Pipelines said, “It’s not about money, it’s about principle. And the nuns have a land ethic that says this Earth is a sanctuary and we regard it as sacred, and we’re going to work to protect it.”
