Marking the Anniversary of Laudato Si'
June 18 marks the one year anniversary of Laudato Si’, Pope Francis' encyclical about the environment. This is a great chance for us to pause and reflect on how we have intentionally cared for God's creation over the past year and to consider how we might deepen this commitment in the year to come.
We encourage communities of faith to take the Catholic Climate Covenant’s St. Francis Pledge to care for creation. We also have a number of resources to help people learn about how caring for creation is a part of our Catholic faith and to take action together.
