God's Plan(et)

At the second biennial conference, Laudato Si’ and the U.S. Catholic Church: A Conference Series on Our Common Home, the Catholic Climate Covenant and its Catholic partners announced an extensive campaign to encourage and inspire participation in the Vatican’s global Laudato Si’ Action Platform.


Called “We’re All Part of God’s Plan(et),” the campaign will ramp up after October 4, which coincides with the feast of St. Francis of Assisi. The messaging will reach seven sectors: families, parishes and dioceses, educational institutions, healthcare institutions, organizations and groups, businesses, and religious orders.  


According to the news release announcing the program, a new website and social media channels, had a “soft launch” during the conference, giving an opportunity to boost efforts of Catholic individuals and groups already interested and engaged in caring for the earth, offering them tools and resources ahead of Season of Creation which begins September 1. 


The release also notes, “The campaign is managed by Catholic Climate Covenant and its member partners. It will embrace the support and engagement of many other Catholic partners who also have capacity for outreach, educational and advocacy programs in the United States.”
