Here at Catholic Earthcare Australia, we have celebrated the very first World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation by releasing this short video Laudato Si’ – An urgent appeal for action.  It features a number of Catholic leaders offering a unique Australian perspective on Pope Francis’ new Encyclical Laudato si’ (read our full media release). It is our hope that this video will act as a catalyst for reflection and action across Australia.

Jacqui Rémond, Director at Catholic Earthcare Australia,  is urging communities, schools and parishes to watch the video together, to reflect on its message and then dialogue about what actions can be taken at an individual, family, community and national level to care for Planet Earth, our common home.
