Sowing Hope for the Planet Christmas Greetings


Dear Participants in Sowing Hope for the Planet,

This has been an amazing year full of important events. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do to bring God’s love to all people and to our precious home, mother Earth. Your work and contributions are helping to provide hopeful solutions to the problems of today – from economic inequality to biodiversity loss.

We continue to be grateful for your companionship in the journey to actualize Laudato Si' and to follow the path that Pope Francis has called us to accompany him upon. Our communities have grown stronger with new and deeper friendships and working relationships, thanks again to your efforts.

Now, let us pray that 2023 will bring many blessings, most especially peace and the end of conflict in the world. We pray that you are safe and healthy and that your Advent and Christmas season is blessed with the special experience of God's presence in your life.

Sr. Sheila Kinsey, FCJM

Sowing Hope for the Planet Webinar

Delivering for People and the Planet by Building a Shared Future: Interconnecting COP 27 (Climate Change) and COP 15 (Biodiversity)

January 18, 2023 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Rome time, in English, French, Italian and Spanish

Our exciting webinar will focus on the effect both conferences can have on the life of our planet. Please join us as participants in both events share their experiences and discuss how Laudato Si' Action Platform and our environmental statements are ways for us to make this vision a reality. We have an opportunity to explore ways to build on the multi-faith coalitions and to learn some advocacy tips. More information will be forthcoming.
