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”.
