On Thursday, September 25, several dozen First Church members and local residents gathered in the Leenhouts Common Room at First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee to watch Pope Francis’ historic congressional address.

Organized by First Church members active in our social justice organizations, the event proved to be a success — giving people a chance to hear the pope’s thoughts on poverty, on climate change and a great deal in between.

Milwaukee’s local NPR affiliate WUWM was on hand to cover the event and speak to some of the attendees. You can read their story here.
