Praying and acting for our common home

1 September 2017 | General Interest

For the third year in succession, Pope Francis is inviting us to join in the Season of Creation, which runs from the beginning of September 1, World Day of Prayer for Care of Creation, to October 4, the feast of St Francis of Assisi, patron saint of the environment.

How can we join with Pope Francis to show support for our common home? The first step is to take the pledge for Laudato Si’. Visit this site (www.livelaudatosi.org/) to sign on, by adding your name and if your position allows you to do so, by adding the name of the Mercy board or ministry in which you serve.
