What an exciting time to be working in the Catholic Church! As you can imagine, the last six weeks have been extremely busy for our Catholic Earthcare team. Since Pope Francis released Laudato si’ on June 18, we have been flooded with media enquiries and requests to speak at events.

We have been posting all the details on Facebook and Twitter, but we also wanted to share some of the highlights with you below.


There has been a high level of media interest in Laudato si’ and Jacqui has appeared on a number of radio programs, including:

Catholic Earthcare have been invited all over the country to speak at events, including:

Events coming soon

  • Late August onwards, Francis Effect II Colloquiums in Catholic diocese, Australia wide
  • September 29 – October 1, Catholic Earthcare Water Symposium for Bishops, Galong NSW

So, as you can see we have been rather busy – and there is a lot more coming up. However we feel blessed to be working in this space at such an exciting time. Laudato si’ is one of the most powerful and inspirational documents to come out of the Catholic Church in our lifetime, and it has been so encouraging to see the huge response here in Australia.

If you are interested in having a Catholic Earthcare team member attend an event or speak on Laudato Si’, please email us at

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.
