In a video message addressing Catholic communities around the world, Pope Francis invited everyone to participate in Laudato Si’ Week from 16-24 May 2020. The video was released on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the publication of the Encyclical. Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development sponsors Laudato Si’ Week and encourages Catholic communities globally to take bolder actions for creation during the week-long initiative. 

The Pope reiterates his urgent call to respond to the ecological crisis: “The cry of the earth and the cry of the poor cannot continue”, he says.

“Let’s take care of creation, a gift of our good Creator God. Let’s celebrate Laudato Si’ Week together.”
