Inspired by Pope Francis’s 2015 encyclical, Laudato Si’, on Care for Our Common Home, parishes and schools have partnered with Catholic Energies, a program of the Washington-based Catholic Climate Covenant, to integrate solar energy and other energy-saving tools into daily operations.
A priest in India has urged people to launch a ‘Movement of Catholics’ to save the environment, joining the larger civil society action movement, and making elected representatives accountable for the formulation and implementation of ecological policies. Father Frazer Mascarenhas S.J. said this is also “our religious duty,” adding “this is the call of Pope Francis.”
