Ecological Care and Creation
Parish Involvement > Ecological Care and Creation
Pope Francis released his exhortation Laudate Deum (Full exhortation available here) on St Francis’ Feast Day, 4 October. It is not a call but an anguished and passionate cry for communal action towards a better future. Its purpose is to enable society to face the reality of our climate crisis and ignite greater action. From 1st to 3rd December, Pope Francis is attending the meeting of world leaders at COP28 to address them.
The Parish website has more information about the letter of Pope Francis and its importance.
In accord with the Parish Strategic Plan, the Service & Outreach Ministry Team is establishing a Laudato Si Action Group (LSAG) to respond to what Pope Francis has written in both Laudato Si -On Care for our common home (2015) and Laudate Deum (2023).
Those wishing to join the LSAG or desiring more information are invited to email Trish Harding (Ministry Team Leader) Caloundra Parish - Service & Outreach [email protected]
Additionally those who wish to read more information or sign up to receive official updates can do so via The Laudato Si' Movement (laudatosimovement.org)
