Laudato Si’ Week begins on May 21, 2023


Pope Francis invites Catholic communities around the world to participate in Laudato Si’ Week 2023.

The weeklong global event will mark the eighth anniversary of Pope Francis' landmark encyclical on creation care and unite the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics to listen and respond to the cry of God’s creation.

Laudato Si’ Week 2023 will be celebrated with the film “The Letter”. This global celebration will unite Catholics to rejoice in the progress we have made in bringing Laudato Si’ to life, and show how the protagonists of “The Letter” are already doing so.  The Letter tells the story of a journey to Rome of frontline leaders to discuss the encyclical letter Laudato Si’ with Pope Francis. The exclusive dialogue with the Pope, included in the film, offers a revealing insight into the personal history of Pope Francis and stories never seen since he became the Bishop of Rome.
