Laudato Si’ Week: 16-24 May | Taking the next steps together

2020 is the fifth anniversary of Laudato Si’

We’ve come a long way toward protecting our common home, but the journey ahead demands radical commitment to our Creator and each other. We’re coming together for the next steps in our groundbreaking journey of hope.

Building on the recent Synod on the Amazon, the Earth Day climate strikes, and thousands of concrete actions taken by Catholic communities everywhere, this May we’re increasing our ambition for creation.

The urgency of the crisis means that we can’t rest on our laurels. Catholic communities are taking an honest look at action to date and committing to the next step in the journey.

Online trainings and a comprehensive toolkit are available to help you on your journey.

We Catholics are 1.3 billion strong, and our faith is a mighty force for goodJoin us.

“What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?” (Laudato Si’, 160)
