Santa Fe Archbishop John C. Wester will give a talk on the need for nuclear disarmament at the Mountain Cloud Zen Center. He will be introduced with a brief overview of the issues by Sangha member Jay Coghlan, Director of Nuclear Watch New Mexico. You may attend this event in person at Mountain Cloud or watch online. Mountain Cloud’s physical address and the Zoom link is above.

John C. Wester was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in 1976 and installed as auxiliary bishop of San Francisco in 1998. He was appointed Bishop of Salt Lake City in 2007. He was subsequently installed as the twelfth Archbishop of Santa Fe on June 4, 2015. He has taken up the cause of nuclear disarmament because more money is spent on nuclear weapons in his Santa Fe Archdiocese than any other diocese in the country. 

Archbishop Wester believes that humanity is entering a new and more dangerous nuclear arms race. In August he will travel to Japan with the Archbishop of Seattle to commemorate the 78th anniversaries of the atomic bombings with the Bishops of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Together, they will appeal for and work toward a future world free of nuclear weapons. Their efforts follow Pope Francis’ guidance, under whose leadership the Vatican was the first to sign and ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
