Care for Creation this Lenten Season

A Lenten message from Catholic Earthcare’s Director Jacqui Rémond. Dear friends, This week we are celebrating the beginning of Lent, and I urge you all to take a moment to consider how you can deepen your relationship with God and with all of God’s creation.

Catholic Earthcare Director meets Pope Francis ahead of ecological encyclical release

  In early May, our Director Jacqui Rémond represented Catholic Earthcare Australia in Rome at a meeting of the Global Catholic Climate Movement (of which Catholic Earthcare is a founding member), to prepare for the release of the ecological encyclical “Praised Be You: On the care of the common home”. Jacqui had the immense privilege of meeting Pope Francis, who endorsed our Catholic Climate Petition which calls on political leaders to commit to ambitious climate action.

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 CatholicEarthcare@caritas.org.au.

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.
