St. Francis/Laudato Si' Pledge
"I pledge to pray, live, and advocate Laudato Si'"

To mark the second anniversary of Pope Francis' encyclical, Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home, Catholic Climate Covenant is re-launching an updated version of our St. Francis Pledge started in 2009: the St. Francis/Laudato Si' Pledge. By taking the pledge, you (re)commit to living out the vision of the encyclical and our Catholic faith through prayer, concrete action, and advocacy.

Now in light of Pope Francis' encyclical, which calls for urgent action on climate change and his invitation to everyone on the planet to care for our common home, we invite you to (re)commit or for the first time commit by taking the newly updated pledge.


Taking the St. Francis Pledge helps you care for our planet and our vulnerable sisters and brothers.
