The Feast of St. Francis is coming upon us, an opportunity to remember how our care of the earth greatly affects how we care for one another. As part of the Catholic Climate Covenant, new resources have been developed to help parishes and community groups celebrate the Feast of St. Francis.
Besides details about the St. Francis Pledge to Care for Creation and the Poor, you will find helpful resources for schools, youth, colleges and adult education. These include lesson plans, prayers, reflections and other educational aides for school and parish settings. The sessions are grounded in Scripture and Catholic social teaching, and use hands-on activities, simulations, games, quizzes, art and music.
