Next week, 16-24 May, is Laudato Si’ Week 2020. Laudato Si’ Week marks the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis’ encyclical on care for our common home. The theme of Laudato Si’ Week 2020 is “everything is connected.”
Pope Francis has invited Catholics around the world to join Laudato Si’ Week, and reflect on our common home. September is the “Season of Creation”, and the purpose of Laudato Si’ Week is to prepare for this season through prayer and online training throughout the week.
Sunday, 24 May is a designated day of prayer for the environment worldwide. In Ireland, an evening music, poetry and song, “Love Letter to the Earth”, will take place on Sunday, 24 May at 8pm. Those involved in this initiative include Bill McKibben, Drew Dillinger, John Philip Newell, Deirdre Ní Chinneidé, Ceara Conway, Anne Rynne, Ealonor Hooker and more. Registrations can be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
