Our Common Home

Pope Francis has released Laudato Si’—his long-awaited encyclical on “human ecology,” or the interrelated relationship between humans and the environment.

We show our respect for the Creator by our stewardship of creation. Care for the earth is not just an Earth Day slogan, it is a requirement of our faith. We are called to protect people and the planet, living our faith in relationship with all of God’s creation. This environmental challenge has fundamental moral and ethical dimensions that cannot be ignored. 

 

Our Wood of Life Exhibition is a very practical development education (DE)  resource that brings the Pope's Encyclical Letter to life.

Why not book and host the Wood of Life Exhibition and a 'hands-on' workshop for your local primary and post-primary school and Parish Council-see curent venues here...

 

Download 'panel 16' from our Wood of Life Exhibition below- The Assisi Declarations on Nature

In 1986, HRH Prince Philip, then President of the WWF International invited five leaders of five of the major religions of the world – Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism - to meet to discuss how their faiths could help save the natural world. The meeting took place in Assisi in Italy, because it was the birth place of St Francis, the Catholic saint of ecology. From this meeting arose key statements by the five faiths outlining their own distinctive traditions and approach to the care for nature.
