To celebrate the Laudato Si’ Year and reflect on this monumental time for humanity, the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference’s Office of Social Justice and Caritas Australia’s Catholic Earthcare program co-hosted a prayer and reflection event with people across the country. Gathering together as a group, the reflection aimed to nourish through prayer and scripture while also fostering dialogue and reflection.
The online event is now available to be viewed and utilised online via Youtube.
During the event, Dr. Sandie Cornish, Social Justice Officer gave more information on the Laudato Si’ Goals Platform which has now been launched globally. The first phase of the program is to build awareness of the platform and commitment from parishes, diocese, schools, community groups and national bodies to undertake the goals.
The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference has committed to the Laudato Si’ Goals over the next seven years, and invites all to join with them.
During Sowers of Hope the prayer included two video reflections that are now able to be viewed from our website.
