The theme for the week is “Listening and Journeying Together.” The eight-day global event will be guided by the following quote from Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’: “Bringing the human family together to protect our common home” (LS 13).

Laudato Si’ Week 2022 will mark the fourth global Laudato Si’ Week celebration (2016, 2020, 2021). But for the first time since 2016, the event will feature in-person events, an important milestone in the world’s efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each day of the week will be highlighted by a global event held in-person, online, or a combination of the two. The events will lift up Catholic teaching on biodiversity, responding to the cry of the poor, divestment, education, and eco-spirituality.

Laudato Si’ Week 2022 General Program

These global events will be held to invite reflection and celebration of the seven Laudato Si’ Goals, with each event highlighting a different goal and region in the world.
