Laudato Si’ Week is almost here!
Laudato Si’ Week 2023 will be celebrated May 21-28 with the film “The Letter” to mark the eighth anniversary of Pope Francis’ landmark encyclical on care for creation. It is a global celebration to rejoice in the progress we have made in bringing Laudato Si’ to life, and to show how the protagonists of “The Letter” are already doing so.
A film screening of “The Letter” was shown during CSA’s Earth Day Fair on April 22 this year. Inspired by this, a fair exhibitor also hosted a screening at her local church a week later! During Laudato Si’ week, more people are encouraged to host a screening event, watch the movie, or host other events. More details can be found here: https://laudatosiweek.org/
Chelsea Koenigs, CSA Motherhouse Receptionist, Social Media Specialist and Laudato Si’ animator since Spring 2022, is creating a series of social media posts for Laudato Si’ Week, May 21-28, where she will highlight one of each of the seven goals daily and share specific actions taken by members of the CSA community that support these goals. Find CSA on any of our social media platforms (see the links at the very bottom of this website) to follow along.
