Pope Francis has called for a World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation on September 1, 2015.

For information about resources for prayer and action to mark the day, go to  http://catholicclimatemovement.global/world-day-of-prayer/

The announcement follows the publication of his encyclical, “Laudate Si’: On the Care of our Common Home” which is focused on the idea of ‘integral ecology’, that is, connecting care of the natural world with justice for the poorest and most vulnerable people.
