Laudato Si 

Protect Our EnvironmenT

What is Laudato Si

Inspired by Pope Francis’ second encyclical (Laudato Si’) devoted to environmentalism and integral ecology, this committee aims to advocate environmentally friendly practices amongst parishioners through education, formation and upcycling projects. In addition, the committee strives to guide parish ministries in adopting environmentally friendly practices by reducing wastage and using environmentally friendly materials.

In Laudato Si’, Pope Francis sets out the destruction that Man is rendering to the environment and each other, in the form of the following:

  • Pollution and Climate Change

  • Lack of Access to Drinkable Water

  • Loss of Biodiversity (i.e. extinction of plants and animals

  • Decline in the Quality of Human Life and the Breakdown of Society

  • Global Inequality

In light of the ecological crisis our world is facing, Laudato Si’ is an invitation to ecological conversion, by reshaping our lifestyle, in order to halt environmental degradation and encourage a “culture of care”.

“What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?”

- Pope Francis

Special Prayer for LAUDATO SI 5th Anniversary

Loving God,
Creator of Heaven, Earth, and all therein contained.
Open our minds and touch our hearts,
so that we can be part of Creation, your gift.

Be present to those in need in these difficult times,
especially the poorest and most vulnerable.
Help us to show creative solidarity
as we confront the consequences of the global pandemic.
Make us courageous in embracing
the changes required to seek the common good.
Now more than ever, may we all feel interconnected and interdependent.

Enable us to succeed in listening and responding
to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor.
May their current sufferings become the birth-pangs
of a more fraternal and sustainable world.

We pray through Christ our Lord,
under the loving gaze of Mary Help of Christians,

Amen.
