This year, Laudato Si’ week takes place from Sunday 19 May to Sunday 26 May.

A celebration guide has been produced and contains a daily activity with an explanation of why this is important and the impact your actions will have. There are also links to additional resources and a daily reflection.

About this Celebration Guide

Inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’, this eight-day guide seeks to motivate tall people of good will to protect our Common Home through concrete actions and simple changes in the way we live.

Each day a specific theme is proposed that addresses aspects of integral ecology, such as waste reduction, renewable energy use and water conservation.

We aim to foster a deeper respect for creation, promote sustainable habits and deepen our commitment to a lifestyle that respects the Creator’s handiwork. Through inspirational quotes, practical activities, reflections and prayers, we hope this guide will be a valuable resource to inspire meaningful change in our interaction with the environment.

Each day you will find an action, ways to put it into practice, its importance and impact on our planet; as well as supporting arguments based on the magisterium of the Catholic Church and science.

The following topics are covered each day:

  • Day 1 (19 May): Ecological Conversion Sunday
  • Day 2 (20 May): Sustainable Transportation Monday
  • Day 3 (21 May): Sustainable Food Tuesday
  • Day 4 (22 May): Renewable Energy Wednesday
  • Day 5 (23 May): Waste Reduction Thursday
  • Day 6 (24 May): Water Conservation Friday
  • Day 7 (25 May): Catechesis and Integral Ecology Saturday
  • Day 8 (26 May): Reflection and Commitment Sunday
