Prayer services, social media campaigns, workshops and webinars are set to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Pope Francis’ social encyclical on the environment, “Laudato Si’, on Care for Our Common Home.”
A year ago on Saturday, June 18, the Vatican published Laudato Si’. Since that time, Catholics communities, as well as secular groups, have used the text as a rallying point to engage environmental issues and take steps toward transforming its teachings into actions.
