Become an Earthcare Parish/Family

In 2015, Pope Francis wrote his environmental encyclical Laudato Si’ in which he implores us to protect our common home. To escalate the implementation of Laudato Si’, Pope Francis has now established the Laudato Si’ Action Platform with its 7 Goals for 7 sectors over 7 years.

Our Australian Bishops Social Justice Statement 2021-22, ‘Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor’ reinforces the call to care for all creation and invites us to join them in taking action and committing to the Laudato Si goals.

Catholic Earthcare Australia has made it easy for parishes and families to take up the Bishops’ invitation by developing a process to assist you on the journey towards these 7 goals and to becoming living Laudato Si’ communities. Become a Catholic Earthcare Parish/Family at

Before registering our Parish, we are seeking parishioners who may be interested in forming a little committee to move this forward. Contact Alma 0417 184 527 or the Parish Office.

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

In Australia the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is scheduled from 29th May to 5th June. This is the 114th year that Christian Churches across the world have celebrated the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The Holy Father, Pope Francis is very dedicated to strengthening ecumenism, by frequently traveling and engaging with other Christian Churches. We are challenged to follow his lead.

This year's theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is:

We saw the star in the East, and we came to worship him

(Mt 2:2).

The following webpage provides some useful resources for Australian Christian communities to use during the week and over the year:

In the Footsteps of Mary MacKillop

An Australian Pilgrimage

During the pilgrimage, we visit many places associated with Mary MacKillop’s life and ministry.
