Taking Action

‘And the Lord took the man and put him in the garden to fill it and keep it.’

Genesis 2:15

The Church calls on us to consider our role and to question what we are each doing to protect the earth. It may not seem that we can do much but ‘the might of the ocean is made up of single drops of water’.

The Diocese of Plymouth has created a short document with some suggestions for how our Environmental Policy can be implemented in our schools, parishes and personal lives. This document will be regularly updated to reflect new guidance and emerging best practice.

Advocate for Change

The Laudato Si Pledge was created by Global Catholic Climate Movement to encourage Catholics to turn the Laudato Si Encyclical into action to care for the planet. The Pledge is a commitment to live simply, to pray for our common home and advocate for its protection. You can sign the pledge online. To download and display in your home, visit the Pledge Forms area of this site.
