ACBA_Facebook banner template_June DCatholic Earthcare Australia would like to invite you to book a Laudato Si’ Clergy Program with National Director Jacqui Rémond, and bring Pope Francis’ new Encyclical to life.

Praise for the Laudato Si’ Clergy Program

“Catholic Earthcare Australia responded positively to an invitation from the Council of Priests to present two sessions at the recent Clergy In-service Conference held on 21-22 July 2015. The clergy welcomed Jacqui Remond and Simon Habel from the agency. The informative talks were supplemented by comprehensive PowerPoint presentations as well as the distribution of helpful printed material. The presenters earned a high degree of acceptance by the clergy; the discussion was enriched by the range of questions that concluded the sessions.”

Most Rev Gerard Hanna, Bishop, Diocese of Wagga Wagga

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.
