Laudato Si’ Week has begun, marking the seventh anniversary of Pope Francis’ encyclical on the care of creation.
It features a series of global celebrations and a sneak peek of The Invitation, a new film featuring Pope Francis. See the full schedule here.
It takes place from May 22-29 to celebrate the progress made in bringing Laudato Si’ to life and intensify their efforts through the Vatican’s Laudato Si’ Action Platform.
Tomás Insua, Executive Director of Laudato Si’ Movement, said: "Amidst chaos and destruction globally, every day Catholics take urgent action against the climate emergency and ecological crisis. Laudato Si’ Week will serve as a fountain of inspiration and lessons learned for all people interested in saving God’s creation.”
Each day of Laudato Si’ Week will feature global, regional, and local events tied to one of the seven Laudato Si’ goals.
On the day celebrating ecological education, footage from The Invitation, a new feature-length documentary film on Laudato Si’, will be shown to the general public during a livestream. The Invitation will have its global release later this year. The event begins at 1pm on 27 May. Registration is required at this link.
