Laudato Si'

In his encyclical, Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home, Pope Francis calls for a new and universal commitment to “strengthen the conviction that we are one single human family.” As such, his is an appeal for a global obligation to integral ecology and compelling responsibility for our home, the earth and for each other. Pope Francis reminds us nature and human beings are indivisible.

NCEA, as the United States representative of Laudato Si’, invites all Catholic school communities in the United States to take up the task to follow the principles of Laudato Si’ and model to their communities how to truly care for our Common Home and all who live in it.

The following resources are available and include useful information for schools, parishes and communities:
