June 18th, 2019 marks the fourth anniversary of the release of Pope Francis’ encyclical, "Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home." During the past four years, parishes, schools, colleges and universities, healthcare facilities, and religious communities have responded with faith, passion, and enormous creativity to the Pope’s call to care for creation and care for the poor.
In addition, over 200 Catholic leaders will meet at Creighton University for a conference in late June to map out the path to further and more fully integrate Pope Francis's encyclical Laudato Si' and a response to the climate crisis into the life and ministry of the U.S. Catholic Church.
In this webinar, we share the good news of what has happened as well as what lies just ahead so, together, we can build on these efforts.
