Laudato Si’ Week 2022, “Listening and Journeying Together”
In Australia we are celebrating Laudato Si’ Week 2022 from May 16-24. The Laudato Si’ website has many resources available for use in parishes, schools and homes.
2022 – SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY OF LAUDATO SI
Laudato Si’ Week: May 16-24, 2022
As part of Catholic Earthcare’s celebration of Laudato Si’ Week, they are hosting an online screening of the newly released ‘Regenerating Australia’ short film – a fictitious news segment set on New Year’s Eve 2029, examining the decade that ‘could be’. The film challenges people to consider how to respond to the Cry of the Earth.
Participants will be joined by Bishop Ken Howell and a range of guest speakers to share in this celebration. After the film, there will be a panel discussion and question time regarding how we can take the teachings of the film and respond as Catholics here in Australia. You are welcome to join by yourself or register a parish group for the viewing (please note if registering for a group, only 1 person need register via Trybooking).
The video will be streamed via zoom so you can watch together on a large screen at a suitable venue like a parish hall. The online event will be held on Tuesday, May 17, 2022 from 6.00pm – 8.00pm AEST, 4.00pm – 6.00pm AWST. Bookings via Trybooking. More information is available in this letter.
