Every year we release a new resource that helps to enable a loving and sustainable relationship with the natural world. In 2015 we are celebrating the UN International Year of Light and Year of Soils, so we are producing a video about gardening, which is a perfect way to illustrate the vital and interconnected role light and soil play.

The theme of the video is ‘Share, Care and Connect’, and it explores the important role gardens play in connecting communities and creating a common home, in the schoolyard and beyond. We collaborated closely with Clare Maloney, a long-time friend of Catholic Earthcare, who has worked with school gardening programs for many years. The company Chello are helping with the video production.

We were very kindly invited to film the video in NSW at Mamre House, St Marys and St Patrick’s Primary, Blacktown on the 4th of May (to read more about the shoot at St Patrick’s, please visit Clare Maloney’s school gardening blog). The stop motion section of the film was shot in Rose Bay on the 12th of May.

The video will be released on World Environment day on June 5 and posted on our website.

Important Announcement

Catholic Earthcare is the part of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference which promotes ecological conversion to achieve a loving and sustainable relationship with the natural world. It uses environmental education, national and international links and advocacy to achieve this goal.

In May 2017, the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference decided to incorporate Catholic Earthcare Australia into its sister agency, Caritas Australia. This change was made to strengthen the capacity of Catholic Earthcare Australia, particularly in advocating and educating about the principles of Holy Father’s 2015 encyclical, Laudato Si, and to achieve synergies with Caritas Australia’s extensive education and advocacy work around Australia, including parishes, schools and the wider Catholic community on environmental issues such as climate change.

Caritas Australia is the Church’s international aid and development agency.  As part of the global Caritas confederation operating in 190 countries, it works alongside marginalised communities in many countries and with 11 First Australian agencies here in Australia.  Promoting the principles of Laudato Si is at the centre of the global confederation and of Caritas Australia.

This website is being refined to reflect the new administrative arrangements for Catholic Earthcare Australia. For all enquiries in relation to the work of Catholic Earthcare Australia or to request assistance, please call  1800 024 413 or email

Thank you for your ongoing support of Catholic Earthcare Australia and your commitment to combating climate change and protecting the environment and ecosystems from degradation and pollution.
