Laudato Si' encyclical from Pope Francis

Pope Francis' 2015 encyclical Laudato Si' remains a profound invitation to everyone on the planet to care for our common home.

Laudato Si' Week 2022, to be held May 22-29, will mark the seventh anniversary of Pope Francis' landmark encyclical on creation care. The theme for this year's week is “Listening and Journeying Together" and the week will be guided by Pope Francis’ words in Laudato Si’: “Bringing the human family together to protect our common home” (LS 13).
