encounter logo 01 1 350x350 1Encounter for Our Common Home is an ongoing national campaign that brings together Catholics across the country to urge our U.S. Senators to enact authentic solutions to the climate crisis. These virtual and in-person encounters with our Senators come from the foundation of our Catholic faith and in accordance with the Laudato Si’ Action Platform.

We are a coalition of U.S. Catholic groups working together for our Common Home. Join Catholic Climate Covenant and our U.S. Catholic partners for this national campaign for climate solutions. This is an advocacy effort in concert with the Vatican’s Laudato Si’ Action Platform (LSAP) activities in the United States.

Thank you COP27

Thank you for signing our letter to President Biden ahead of COP27

As Catholics guided by the call to care for our vulnerable neighbors and our common home, we asked the Biden Administration to exercise leadership at the upcoming UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COP27) with moral courage and exceptional ambition.

Our U.S. Catholic Letter, co-sponsored by nine Catholic organizations and signed by more than 4,000 U.S. Catholics, was delivered to the Biden Administration on 10/27/2022, urging them to encourage all nations to dramatically reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and provide meaningful assistance to the nations and peoples most impacted by climate change.
