Listening and Journeying Together-Laudato Si’ Week 2022

This year, we join the Catholic communities across the globe in celebrating Laudato Si’ Week from May 22– 29, 2022. The theme, Listening and Journeying Together, allows us to walk the path of synodality as we reflect on our responses to the cry of God’s creation.

Cardinal Michael Czerny SJ, interim Prefect of the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, which sponsors Laudato Si’ Week, said: “As the purchasing of fossil fuels funds wars and further destroys God’s creation, our Holy Father is calling on us not to despair but to unite, not to lament this destruction but to take urgent action together. Let us come together as one global Catholic family committed to peace and caring for God’s creation in Laudato Si’ Week 2022.”

On May 24, the Church marks the seventh-year anniversary of the publication of Pope Francis’s Encyclical Letter Laudato Si’ (‘LS’, On Care for Our Common Home).

During Laudato Si’ Week there will be a schedule of events guided by the following quote from Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’: “Bringing the human family together to protect our common home” (LS, 13).

The Vatican hopes to intensify its efforts through the Laudato Si’ Action Platform which empowers the universal Church to fully implement Laudato Si’ during a seven-year journey.

The global events will highlight the seven goals of Laudato Si’ in the spirit of integral ecology.

The call in the 7 Laudato Si’ goals:

  1. Response to the cry of the Earth
  2. Response to the cry of the poor
  3. Ecological economics
  4. Adoption of simple lifestyles
  5. Ecological education
  6. Ecological spirituality
  7. Community engagement and participatory action

In Trinidad and Tobago, we hope to bring Laudato Si’ to life in our island nation and care for the most vulnerable.

During Laudato Si’ Week you can connect with CCSJ’s webinar on Thursday, May 26, 2022, on the topic of ‘Food security and environmental impacts’
