Laudato Si Week 2024

Laudato Si’ Week

Laudato Si’ Week is a time to re-commit ourselves to the ecological conversion to which Pope Francis invited us in Laudato Si’. The Office has produced new resources for the week focussing on listening to the ecological wisdom of Indigenous Peoples.

NAIDOC Week

In the Gospel, Jesus compels us to welcome the stranger (Matthew 25:35). Welcome in this context involves both an attitude and an action. It is our attitude which constantly needs to be assessed in light of the Gospel to ensure that we are carrying out the Lord’s commandment to love our neighbour as ourselves.
