On Sunday, May 22, Pope Francis will inaugurate the Laudato Si’ Week at the Sunday Angelus prayer at 12pm from St. Peter’s Square in Rome.
Listening and journeying together to care for creation
Pope Francis invites Catholic communities around the world to participate in Laudato Si’ Week 2022 to be celebrated from May 22 to 29.
The weeklong global event will mark the seventh anniversary of Pope Francis' landmark encyclical on creation care.
The goal is to unite the world’s Catholics and every good will person, to listen and respond to the cry of God’s creation.
The theme for the week is “Listening and Journeying Together” guided by the following quote from Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’: “Bringing the human family together to protect our common home” (LS 13).
Each day of the week will be highlighted by a global event that will lift up Catholic teaching on biodiversity, responding to the cry of the poor, divestment, education, and eco-spirituality.
Locally, thousands of events will bring the message of Laudato Si’ to everyday Catholics, helping bring this global celebration to life and changing countless communities around the world.
Calendar of events:
As supporters of this global initiative, the Teresian Association invites everyone to unite as we further bring the encyclical Laudato Si’ to life, care for the most vulnerable and care for creation.
Laudato Si’ Week 2022 is sponsored by the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development and facilitated by Laudato Si’ Movement in collaboration with a cohort of Catholic partners.
