This first-of-its-kind network will pray for and accompany those most affected by climate and ecological injustice.

In the spirit of Laudato Si’ 2021, the platform “Prayer Network for the Care of Creation”, a network of communities committed to the healing of our common home, has been created. The JPIC Office, with the support of Pro Monialibus, has invited the Poor Clares, the Capuchin Sisters and the Conceptionist Sisters to be part of this network.

It is with joy that we have seen that several monasteries have been joining together. We’d like to share some of the responses the sisters sent, who once again are a sign of hope and fraternity:

“We have received your message, we have already signed up, count on our unconditional prayerful presence, as it has been up to now. In whatever way we can serve, that is what we are called to do”.

“It is with great pleasure that we accept this beautiful invitation to be part of this effort of our beloved Franciscan Order in the awareness of the care and protection of our common home. May the Lord bless and generate many fruits with this initiative to grow from good to better”.

What does the prayer network do?

The network unites in prayer for creation and the most vulnerable among us. The prayer network accompanies the most vulnerable species and non-human life affected by climate and ecological injustice and joins with Catholic institutions worldwide to help more people care for creation and begin their ecological conversion.

The official launch of the Prayer Network for the Care of Creation will take place on Thursday, 20 May, during Laudato Si’ Week.

We invite you to join the network; you can find more information and register on the website: https://laudatosipray.org/
