Join the church world-wide in the observance of Laudato Si’ Week, marking Pope Francis’ signing of Laudato Si’, the encyclical on care for our common home, on May 24, 2015. Laudato Si’ Week, set for May 16-24, 2020, will include a number of online workshops. The week, sponsored by the Vatican Dicastery for Integral Human Development, ends with a day of prayer Sunday, May 24 at noon local time.
“It’s a time for Catholics around the world to pray, reflect and prepare to build a better world together,” said Anna Wagner, director of network engagement for the Global Catholic Climate Movement, which is working with RENOVA+, an Argentine Catholic organization promoting the encyclical, to facilitate the week with the dicastery.
A video message from the pope and other resources for observing the week can be found at laudatosiweek.org.
The Creation Care Commission of the The Archdiocese of Indianapolis has additional information and resources for this special week at ourcommonhome.org.
Many things have to change course, but it is we human beings above all who need to change. (Laudato Si’ #202)
