Laudato Si Commission

The Laudato Si Commission leads diocesan efforts of Care for Creation, equipping parishes to teach, implement, and model the Christian call to ‘ecological conversion’ as in Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si.

Mission Statement: We, as the Catholic Diocese of Lexington Laudato Si Commission, will promote the spirituality of creation by expressing our love for God and one another by exercising good stewardship and care for God’s creation as an essential practice of our faith. There are “three fundamental and closely intertwined relationships: with God, with our neighbor and with the earth itself.” (LS66)

Vision: The Laudato Si Commission will model this development through activities and prayer services (both personal and communal) for people of all ages
