Laudato Si Week: 19-26 May

Laudato Si' week runs from the 19- 26 May with the theme Seeds of Hope.

It began as a way to celebrate the first anniversary of Pope Francis’ papal encyclical letter, Laudato Si’: On Care For Our Common Home.

Since then, the annual celebration has become a way for all Catholics to unite and rejoice in the progress made in bringing Laudato Si’ to life and to commit ourselves to further prayer and action for our common home.

This Laudato Si’ Week website states: "Let us be seeds of hope in our lives and our world, rooted in faith and love."

Laudate Deum, the 2023 apostolic exhortation by Pope Francis, is a reminder about the urgency of the Laudato Si’ message.

A webinar titled 'Imagining a Christian Response to the Climate Crisis', organised by Laudato Si´Animators Scotland, takes place at 7.00-8.30pm on Thursday 23 May. Register here.
