Common Grace Humble Love snapshot

Listen to Jesus’ call to ‘Love Thy Neighbour’.

Easter is a time to get re-centred and to re-focus on Jesus and his great love. Catholic Earthcare and our friends at Common Grace invite you to join us as we contemplate what it means to follow Jesus’ example of extravagant love by obeying his instruction to “Love Thy Neighbour” in our 21st century world.

In this short video, Catholic Earthcare Director, Jacqui Rémond calls us to notice the humble Jesus and his call to follow him in servant love. Reflecting on Jesus washing his disciples’ feet, she reflects on the humility of loving the earth and all God’s creation in light of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’.

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.
