The Congregation of St. Joseph has pledged to participate in the Laudato Si’ Action Platform, a Vatican-sponsored effort facilitated by the Laudato Si’ Movement (formerly Global Catholic Climate Movement) to achieve sweeping environmental sustainability.
As part of making this pledge, we are developing an ambitious seven-year plan of actions to address the cry of Earth, cry of the poor, ecological economics, adoption of sustainable lifestyles, ecological education, ecological spirituality, and community resilience and empowerment, among ourselves and in collaboration with the global Catholic community.
We urge others to join with us in supporting the actions named in Laudato Si’ that demand halting and reversing climate change as part of the unity of all creation and because we recognize that the crises of humanity and the crises of Earth are intertwined and must be addressed in a comprehensive and wholistic manner.
More information will be shared in the coming weeks and months, so we invite you to check back here often. You can also learn more about us and the Laudato Si’ Movement by joining us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, or by subscribing to our bi-weekly eNewsletter and our bi-annual magazine, imagineONE.
