"2020 occasions the fifth anniversary of Laudato Si’, which was signed on 24 May 2015.
Pope Francis’ encyclical on care for our common home, Laudato Si’, is an inspiration during moments of difficulty. It encourages us to reflect on the values we share and create a more just and sustainable future.
Pope Francis has asked us to mark this anniversary with a moment of prayer. In communion with many other events taking place around the world, we will be hosting an online service of prayer and reflection on Sunday 24th March at 11.30am. We will then pray together the common prayer for Laudato Si at 12pm, at the same time as other Catholics from across the globe.
The service will be hosted on Zoom. If you would be interested in attending the service, provide your email address below. You will be sent an invitation to the event which you can use to access the service.
You can use your laptop, tablet or mobile phone. If you have any technical questions, get in touch and we can help direct you."
