Living the spirit of Laudato Si' and the Gospel of Creation towards Integral Ecology
What does Laudato Si' and Integral Ecology mean for me and my community? How can we personally and as communities better care for our common home? Is this call for action a way to animate ourselves and our communities to be the good news for the whole of creation? What is a Laudato Si' Action Plan and how do we go about it?
