Catholic Climate Covenant
The Catholic Climate Covenant offered a full Earth Day program focusing on the theme of “Restore Our Common Home”. As people of faith we must protect and restore God’s beautiful gift of creation. This is a one hour educational and prayer program that is ideal for families, parishes, schools and religious communities. Beginning this program, prepares us for the Vatican and Diocesan launch of their Laudato Si’ platforms in May 2021 and our commitments as a faith community to the Earth.

Meaningful Dialogue Guides for Small Group Discussion
The forum released the Care for our Common Home Dialogue Guide as a tool for parishes, schools, community groups, to engage with the Holy Father's Encyclical, Laudato Si. The forum recently released a new resource, A Dialogue Guide on Justice and Right Relationships. It focuses on listening to and centring Indigenous Voices. Both guides are ideal for small group discussion, and include comprehensive instructions on how to facilitate meaningful discourse on important social issues. You can access both resources here: HERE
