Laudato Si Anniversary

This year the global Catholic community is celebrating the sixth anniversary of Pope Francis’  landmark encyclical letter,  Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home (2015).Laudato Si’ offers a vision for building a more just and sustainable world. The lessons of the encyclical can provide a path forward as societies emerge from the coronavirus pandemic, which has brought many parts of the world to a halt.
