Pope Francis Opens Laudato Si Week

Hundreds of thousands of Catholics unite from May 22-29 to celebrate the progress made in bringing the Pope’s encyclical Laudato Si’ to life.

Crucial issues to be explored during Laudato Si’ Week include, the call to combat biodiversity collapse; the role of fossil fuels in conflicts and the climate crisis; and how we all can embrace the poor in our daily lives.

These issues strongly echo our call as Brigidines to ‘Choose life now and into the future’.
