Join Us and the Mercy World in 9 Days of Prayer & Reflection
18 June is the second anniversary of the release by Pope Francis of his letter Laudato Si': On Care for our Common Home.
To mark the second anniversary of the release by Pope Francis of his encyclical letter Laudato Si’, Sisters of Mercy across the globe have committed to 9 Days of Prayer and reflection using the Prayer for our Earth.
The 9 Days will commence on Saturday, 10 June and conclude on Sunday 18 June, the actual anniversary.
We, Sisters of Mercy of the Parramatta Congregation, are committed to protecting the rights of the natural world and to stemming the hurtful effects of climate change, pollution and the ‘throw away’ mentality, all of which concerns are addressed by Pope Francis in Laudato Si’.
We invite you to join us and the Mercy world in both marking the anniversary in prayer and in reflecting on the ways in which you can act to respect and protect the rights of Earth and the Earth community.
