Earth Day's 50th Anniversary and Laudato Si's 5th Anniversary!

A Time for Reflection, Prayer, Commitment and Action

50 years ago on April 22, 1970
 the very first “Earth Day” took place and gave birth to the modern environmental movement.

5 years ago on May 24, 2015
Pope Francis released Laudato Si’ the first papal encyclical to focus entirely on the environment, its destruction, and how humanity is called to “Care for Our Common Home” in a comprehensive way.

Along with the Catholic Climate Covenant and the Global Catholic Climate Movement, this blog will be offering opportunities for reflection, prayer, commitment, and action inspired by both Earth Day and Laudato Si’ throughout the Easter Season: a time of rebirth and renewal.

Look for new
"Earth Day @ 50 and Laudato Si’ @ 5"
announcements each week on Our Mother of Sorrows Parish's website and facebook page, and on this
 “Holy Ground Common Ground”  blog.
