We would like to personally invite you to join the following initiatives, which support our Holy Father's call in Laudato Si to care for creation:
1. Christian Life Community has partnered with a network of more than 400 religious communities worldwide in observing this Season of Creation. We encourage you to prayerfully consider participating in one or more of these initiatives that are also described on the website: www.seasonofcreation.org
- Organize a Prayer Vigil for Creation: This can be ecumenical, in your parish, in your small group, in your family! http://seasonofcreation.org/steps-to-organize-aprayer-vigil-for-creation
- Symbolic Actions: This year, Christian communities will be engaging in symbolic actions in front of coal mines, fracking wells, and other sites of ecological destruction
- Register vigils, services + symbolic actions online: scroll down on homepage of www.seasonofcreation.org
- BIG SHIFT Campaign: Urge the World Bank to phase out support for fossil fuels by 2020 and support renewable energy http://seasonofcreation.org/wpcontent/uploads/2017/07/Big-Shift-WorldBankGoRE-Factsheet-V1.pdf
- Divestment Campaign: Encourage organizations to divest of fossil fuels and join announcement on Oct 4th. http://seasonofcreation.org/october-4-joint-divestmentannouncement/
2. Online Prayer Services: on September 1st and on September 19th. An ecumenical team of international faith leaders have organized two online prayer services together. We have been able to get some really good folks to participate on this, including Bill McKibben of 350.org, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and a Catholic sister from Latin America!
3. Laudato Si Pledge: Our goal is to have 1 million Catholics sign a pledge to: pray for and with creation, live more simply, and advocate to protect our common home. http://livelaudatosi.org/
