CATHOLIC CLIMATE COVENANT
Earth Day 2021: Restore Our Common Home
This year’s Earth Day program theme is “Restore Our Common Home”, a theme that addresses how as people of faith we must urgently act to not only protect but restore God’s beautiful gift of creation. The one-hour educational and prayer program is the perfect way for our families, parishes, schools, and religious communities to prepare for the Vatican’s launch of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform in May 2021 (during Laudato Si’ Week) The program contains prayers, readings, discussion questions, a short video, and suggested activities.
GLOBAL CATHOLIC CLIMATE MOVEMENT
Earth Day 2021: Restore our Earth
Every Earth Day, Catholics from around the world come together to take action for creation. The 50th anniversary of Earth Day, 22 April 2020, looked a lot different than all of us expected. But as an enduring symbol of Spirit-filled hope, Catholics worldwide still united to raise our voices for creation. In 2021, we will again come together with the Earth Day Network and transform this annual celebration into a launchpad for even greater action.
