April 22, 2016 marks the 46th anniversary of Earth Day. In keeping with Pope Francis’ call to the faithful and all people of good will to care for God’s creation, the Catholic Climate Covenant offers a myriad of resources for individuals, church groups and families to assist them in their celebration of our planet and its abundant resources.

Visit www.catholicclimatecovenant.org to access prayers, video presentations, scripture, advocacy campaigns and a downloadable program guide that can help you plan a specific one-hour event focused on caring for creation and the poor. Also visit www.orlandodiocese.org/praisedbe for information about the pope’s encyclical on caring for our common home and other resources.
