Laudato Si’ Week 2021, 16 - 24 May

Laudato Si’ reminds us to harbor hope at all times, and especially amidst dark times, including the COVID-19 pandemic. The theme for Laudato Si’ Week 2021 is, “for we know that things can change” (Laudato Si’, 13)

Laudato Si’ Week (*website)

Laudato Si’ Week began as a way to celebrate the first anniversary of Pope Francis’ world-changing papal encyclical letter, Laudato Si’: On Care For Our Common Home.

The encyclical has helped the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics better understand that “everything is connected” and put millennia of Catholic teaching in the context of today’s ecological crisis and climate emergency.

Pope Francis finished writing Laudato Si’ on 24 May 2015, and one year later, thousands of Catholics united to celebrate the encyclical that had already spurred prayer and action for our common home.

Laudato Si’ Week 2020

In March 2020, Pope Francis invited Catholics to take part in the weeklong event that was to mark the fifth anniversary of the encyclical and help Catholics rejoice in the progress they had made in bringing Laudato Si’ to life and caring for creation.

But by the time Laudato Si’ Week 2020 arrived in mid-May, the COVID-19 pandemic had shut down much of the world and forced billions to quarantine at home. Catholics, like the rest of the world, were forced to adapt.

Yet across the globe, hundreds of thousands of Catholics overcame countless obstacles to honor the anniversary of the encyclical and reflect on building a better world together.

Laudato Si’ Week 2021

For Laudato Si’ Week 2021, Catholics across the globe will take part in the celebration that will serve as the crowning moment of the Laudato Si’ Special Anniversary Year.

The weeklong event will let the faithful celebrate the great progress the global Church has made in its ecological conversion journey during the past six years and offer a clear road map for the decade ahead.

We know that much remains to be done, but we rejoice and celebrate the steps we have taken thus far, and we look to the future with hope.
