Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si’ has, since its release in 2015, generated tremendous interest among Catholics and non-Catholics, inspiring many to reflect on the interconnectedness of environmental, social, and economic justice. Different study and reflection groups on the Laudato Si’ have emerged around the world.

Laudato Si Week, which celebrates the encyclical anniversary, offers such an opportunity for Catholics to reflect on some of the pertinent subjects related to economic, social, and environmental justice. Pope Francis invites the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics to participate in the Laudato Si’ Week 2021, held 16-24 May. Laudato Si’ Week 2021 was an opportunity to reflect on lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare for the future with hope.
