Take action for the Season of Creation

Two years ago, Pope Francis released his groundbreaking environmental encyclical, Laudato Si’. Since then, world leaders, businesses, and individuals have made commitments to reduce fossil fuel emissions and to help climate vulnerable communities around the world. 

The recent change in the U.S. government’s approach to the climate crisis has left many people asking: “What should we do now?”

Prayer: We invite you to use the Prayer for the Earth that Pope Francis shares in Laudato Si’. Other prayer resources are listed in the toolkit on the website for the "Season of Creation." May our prayers stir us to action!

Action: The Season of Creation invites you to join the “Big Shift Global” Campaign to ask the World Bank to shift all of its projects away from fossil fuels and invest in renewable energy. Here’s a fact sheet that explains the campaign.

Thank you for all your prayers and actions for the care for Creation!
