The Franciscan Delegation has returned home from Paris with a renewed sense of responsibility to continue to care for our common home. The COP21 summit was extremely informative and the whole Franciscan Family now looks forward to the next challenges and steps we need to take together to help implement the Paris Agreement.
Together, we are committed to holding our governments responsible for their actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to the Green Climate Fund. Our brothers and sisters in poverty will feel the impact of climate change even as we work toward correcting our course. As Franciscans, we feel connected to all God's creation and it is our moral obligation to care for these.

Please look for and download the Laudato Si study guide on the Francis35 website, developed by the Roman VI and mentioned in the webinar.
Additionally, due to technical problems, during the English webinar we were not able to share the video of Fr. Michael Perry sharing what it means to care for our common home. You can view his response below.
