The publication of Laudato Si’ in 2015 marked an important moment in the life of the Church. In this encyclical Pope Francis addressed the issue of climate justice and care for Our Common Home.
On Saturday 2nd September, after the Vigil Mass, we had a showing of the film, The Letter, showing the events a couple of years ago with invitations sent to 5 individuals across the globe inviting them to talks with Pope Francis at the Vatican. These people represent the poor, the indigenous, the youth and wildlife.

This letter (Laudato Si) was addressed to Catholics and people of good will of all nations. It was to ask them to change their perception of the world, to embrace a ‘new way of thinking about human beings, life, society and our relationship with nature.’
It proposes practical and political solutions to the foremost problems facing our world today and challenges not only political leaders but each and every one of us.
