WHAT ARE LAUDATO SI' CIRCLES?
    Description based on the Global Catholic Climate Movement website

Laudato Si Circles are small groups of people who gather regularly to deepen their relationship with God as Creator and all members of creation. They are comprised of people committed to the process of ecological conversion, both as individuals and collectively, with the goal of engaging in urgently needed Laudato Si action.

LS Circles are rooted in three pillars of prayer, simplicity, and communal action.

1) prayer with and for creation (for instance through praying outside, an ecological examen, a special Mass)

2) reflection and discernment on participants’ ongoing process of ecological conversion,

particularly as it relates to issues of simplicity and consumption, and

3) engagement in group action to be developed by the Circle participants as ideas and inspiration emerge from (1) and (2)
