Laudato Si'

The Laudato Si Task Force works in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Syracuse to promote and encourage prayer, liturgy, dialog, and actions promoting the beauty and value of God’s creation. Our goals are for individuals and communities to increase their love and deep appreciation for God’s earth and to promote actions in support of healing and preserving our common home.


Pope Francis released an encyclical focused on ecology on June 18, 2015. The Catholic Church brings a distinct perspective to the discussion of environmental questions, by lifting up the moral dimensions of these issues and the needs of the most vulnerable among us.

 This unique contribution is rooted in Catholic teaching calling us to care for creation and for "the least of these." [MT 25:40]
