Catholic Education and Laudato Si'

A 5-part presentation series on Laudato Si' created by Liz Morrison of Catherine's Residence provides an introduction to Pope Francis's encyclical, and continues on to examine various aspects of the document as they relate to climate change. It highlights critical climate issues, including conservation, clean water access, the impact of global warming on the poor, and the need for biodiversity. It can be viewed here.

Caring for Our Common Home, 2015

Catholic Climate Covenant’s 2015 Feast of St. Francis program, “Caring for Our Common Home,” explores how to
