Catechists: Do you need Laudato Si’ classroom resources and materials? Get a copy of book recommendations, lesson plans and more, for all age groups. This resource was developed by the Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids and friends to assist catechists in sharing Pope Francis’ call to Care for Our Common Home. Children’s Book Recommendations for Laudati Si 

Since 1992, the Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids have been engaged in care of earth initiatives in support of our Relationship with the Earth Direction Statement:

We commit ourselves to foster the contemplative stance that all the earth is sacred and interconnected; respect and accountability for the earth are necessary to the survival of life. We affirm that actions which impact the environment will be preceded by the question: Is this action which I (we) are performing supportive of the environment?

As we continue to contemplate Care of Earth as a Congregation we encourage our community of friends to read Laudato Si’ Care of Our Common Home, written by Pope Francis and released for the world.
