BRISBANE’S CATHOLIC JUSTICE & PEACE COMMISSION ANNOUNCES 40 DAY
40 days of prayer lead up to next phase of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform
The Catholic Justice & Peace Commission of the Archdiocese of Brisbane announces its co-leadership of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development’s 40-day campaign of prayers based on the Laudato Si’ Goals, for communities joining the Laudato Si’ Action Platform.
The prayer campaign supports the seven sectors joining the Laudato Si’ Action Platform with a dedicated day of prayer for each, connecting each sector with a Laudato Si’ Goal.
14 November will begin the next phase in the Laudato Si’ Action Platform. On that date, Laudato Si’ Planning Guides and all related materials will be published, and members of the universal Church will be invited to make a firm commitment to creating their own Laudato Si’ Plans.
While the next phase in the platform had been planned for 4 October, the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development sees a need to continue building on the dynamic conversations taking place with the Catholic Justice & Peace Commission of the Archdiocese of Brisbane and nearly 200 additional partners.
The Catholic Justice & Peace Commission of the Archdiocese of Brisbane has been an integrally important co-leader of efforts to build the Laudato Si’ Action Platform. Serving as a member of the Parishes and Dioceses working group, the Commission has assisted in shaping both the model and the content of the platform.
Extending the date from 4 October to 14 November helps ensure that the Laudato Si’ Action Platform will truly serve the needs of Catholic parishes, schools, families and other institutions
All Catholic parishes, schools, families and households and other institutions are warmly invited to review the existing resources on the Laudato Si’ Action Platform website and to discern their commitment to creating a Laudato Si’ Plan.
