How will you plant seeds of hope this Laudato Si’ Week?

In just a few days, we are invited to gather in the community to contemplate and nurture seeds of hope for our suffering planet.

We are being asked to do this as part of Laudato Si’ Week, which runs from Sunday 19 May to Sunday 26 May. The week is a global celebration of Pope Francis’ Encyclical Laudato Si’ and a call to action for all of us to care for the environment in which we live.

This year’s theme – Seeds of Hope – is inspired by the symbol for Season of Creation 2024, “firstfruits.”

It encourages us to be seeds of hope in our lives and our world, rooted in faith and love.

So, how can you celebrate?

This year, a guide has been created that includes a number of activities to take part in during the week. Each day, a specific theme is proposed that addresses aspects of integral ecology, such as waste reduction, renewable energy use and water conservation.
