Laudato Si’ Week Everything Is Connected

The Theme of Laudato Si’ Week is “Everything Is Connected”
As we approach the 5th anniversary of Laudato Si’ many organizations are collaborating to provide resources for Laudato Si’ Week.  Take some time to explore the recently created Laudato Si’ website  where you can watch Pope Francis’ invitation to participate in the week.
An  online Common Prayer will take place at noon on Sunday May 24th. Once you register on the Laudato Si website you will find information about how to pray with others around the world.

We are invited to pray the Prayer for the Earth  Daily Prayer Laudato Si WeekPrayer Laudato Si' Week each day. 
You can download a Meditation on Creation for each day of the week here:
