For Families, Couples, and Individuals
Courtesy of Maryknoll Affiliates, the resources below were created and compiled to help you in your personal (and family/household) progress meeting the seven action goals of Laudato Si'. Check back monthly to see new updated resources.
Praised Be You, My Lord…How can I help to build your kingdom?
Did you know that Pope Francis has asked all Catholics, and all Catholic organizations, at all levels across the globe, to begin their own 7-Year Laudato Si’ journey?
- Year 1: The first year, discernment, reflection and planning.
- Year 2 – 6: Implementation
- Year 7: Sabbath year, celebration and reflection (will come sooner than you think)
The goal is to transform our lives toward environmental sustainability, in the spirit of Laudato Si’.
Join us this year! Beginning in September 2022, the Maryknoll Affiliates LS Working Group will build and issue a new worksheet each month to address each of the 7 goals of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform (LSAP).
As each worksheet becomes available, download and print it. Read through it and look at the suggested resources for learning. Talk about it with the other members of your household, choose actions and commit to them. By March 2023, you will have built a plan to cooperate with God for the care of His Creation, a plan that you can implement over the following six years. Join us now, we’re waiting for you!
Do you have questions or suggestions for improvement of these resources? Write to us at LSMKAffiliates@outlook.com or check the Maryknoll Affiliates website at https://www.maryknollaffiliates.org/workshops.
