October 4, 2021 (SIGNIS / Laudato Si' Action Platform). SIGNIS announces its co-leadership of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development's 40-day campaign of prayers based on the Laudato Si' Goals, for communities joining the Laudato Si' Action Platform.

The prayer campaign supports the seven sectors joining the Laudato Si' Action Platform with a dedicated day of prayer for each, connecting each sector with a Laudato Si' Goal. The full set of prayers is available here.

The prayer campaign begins on 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis, and concludes on 14 November, the World Day of Prayer for the Poor. 14 November will occasion the next phase in the Laudato Si' Action Platform. On that date, Laudato Si' Planning Guides and all related materials will be published, and members of the universal Church will be invited to make a firm commitment to creating their own Laudato Si' Plans. 

While the next phase in the platform had been planned for 4 October, the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development sees a need to continue building on the dynamic conversations taking place with SIGNIS and nearly 200 additional partners. 

SIGNIS warmly invites you to review the existing resources on the Laudato Si' Action Platform website and to discern your commitment to creating a Laudato Si' Plan.
