Laudato Si’ Week

Hundreds of thousands of Catholics are uniting this week to mark the seventh anniversary of Laudato Si’, Pope Francis’ encyclical on the care of creation. 
In the Diocese of Albany, a planning group is being organized to prepare a Laudato Si’ Action Plan that will outline tangible actions that can be taken to meet the seven Laudato Si’ Goals in the coming years. Members of the committee are expected to be announced shortly.
The theme for the week is “Listening and Journeying Together.” The eight-day global event is guided by the following quote from Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’: “Bringing the human family together to protect our common home” (LS 13).
On May 27, 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 for the first time during a live-streaming event. "The Invitation" will have its global release later this year. Registration is required and is available here.
More information on the week’s activities and the complete schedule is here.
