May 22 – 29, 2022
Laudato Si’ Week 2022 will mark the seventh anniversary of Pope Francis’ landmark encyclical on creation care. This global celebration will unite Catholics to listen and respond together to the cry of creation, rejoice in the progress we have made in bringing Laudato Si’ to life, and intensify our efforts through the dynamic Laudato Si’ Action Platform, walking the “Synodal” path.
Choose some actions this week to pray and act with Catholics worldwide to protect our common home!
Use ideas from our 2021 Season of Creation toolkit to pray, learn, and take action. Includes sections for parishes, individuals and families, schools, and youth ministry.
Laudato Si’ Action Platform
The Laudato Si’ Action Platform (LSAP) is an initiative to engage all sectors of the global Catholic Church in a 7-year journey to global sustainability and spiritual conversion. It is framework designed to inspire and equip Catholics and Catholic institutions to implement the teachings of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ with guidance, resources, and community.
