Laudato Si’ is a wakeup call for all of us! A call to become involved, a call to take action. In this program we will look closely at the elements of concern and the consequences of climate change, As we listen to testimonies from around the world: many of unfairness and injustice of this crisis and how it is affecting the poor and mother earth. Participants will share their own involvement, calling forth the importance of our commitment to “Care of our Common Home.” The Laudato Si’ Animator model will guide our reflections and actions enabling us to enhance our skills of prayer and action leading to a deeper ecological conversion. This profound act of care invites us into this Global Movement of solidarity.
