LAUDATO SI CREATION CARE MINISTRY

On Care for Our Common Home (Laudato Si’) is the new appeal from Pope Francis addressed to “every person living on this planet” for an inclusive dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet.  “We have forgotten that we ourselves are dust of the earth (cf. Gen 2:7); our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters.”  Pope Francis calls the Church and the world to acknowledge the urgency of our environmental challenges and to join him in embarking on a new path.  Our Laudato Si’ Creation Care Ministry formed in response to this call.  With candor and humility, we acknowledge problems “closely linked to a throwaway culture” and seek ways to bring healing to our common home.
