Welcome to Peace Church, a community dedicated to living and embodying the profound teachings of Pope Francis' Laudato Si' Action Platform. With a deep commitment to environmental sustainability, social justice, and the well-being of our planet, Peace Church integrates these principles into its core beliefs.
Understanding Laudato Si'
Laudato Si' is an encyclical released by Pope Francis in 2015, affirming the interconnectedness between our planet, its ecosystems, and human beings. It calls for urgent action to protect our common home and addresses various issues such as climate change, pollution, and global inequalities.
The Action Platform
The Laudato Si' Action Platform is an all-encompassing initiative that seeks to inspire and mobilize individuals, communities, and institutions towards sustainable change. It provides a comprehensive framework for addressing environmental, social, and economic challenges.
The Action Platform is built upon four key principles:
- See - Recognizing the interconnectedness of all life and the need for ecological conversion.
- Judge - Assessing the impacts of human actions on the environment and marginalized communities.
- Act - Taking concrete steps towards sustainable practices and advocating for change.
- Dialogue - Engaging in meaningful conversations and fostering collaborations to address environmental challenges collectively.
