These are prayers and worship resources that can be used during the COP28 session
(Nov. 30th-December 12th, 2023) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Pope Francis will be attending the COP session in early December and is expected to address the delegates. It is important that we pray that we see positive outcomes at this COP, for the safety and well-being of the Holy Father during his trip and that his message be heard, for people and communities affected by the climate crisis, and for the church to take action on climate.
