Join the Lasallian Family!

The ‘Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home’ encyclical has helped the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics to better understand that “everything is connected” and has placed centuries of Catholic teaching in the context of today’s ecological crisis and climate emergency. In this special week, the Lasallian Family from Rome invites you to make the Lasallian voice heard around the world by posting photos and videos on social media that reflect the Lasallian commitment to creation: awareness and/or education programs on ecology, projects for environmental sustainability, green areas and activities for young people.

In order to reach a true sustainability, we need to think beyond the borders of our immediate surroundings and analyze planet Earth as the common home that we must protect. As Lasallians we are called to work to “unite all the human family in the search for a comprehensive and sustainable development, because we know that things can change”

Lasallian Reflection 3: Lasallians Without Limits

From USCCB

The Laudato Si’ Advocates (LSA) Program is an internship administered by the Environmental Justice Program (EJP), in association with the National Religious Partnership for the Environment (NRPE), and Creatio. The Program equips college-age individuals with skills to advocate for legislation that promotes the integral ecology described in Laudato Si’. Advocates earn a stipend, attend a training summit in Washington, D.C., receive monthly formation, and are given instruction in advocacy.

Applicants can apply to one of two positions: Laudato Si’ Advocates and Laudato Si’ Interns. The Advocate and Intern positions are now open for Fall 2021-2022. Advocates work with the Program Coordinator to engage in federal policy advocacy whereas interns serve both local diocesan needs (in select dioceses) and federal policy advocacy. Interns will be working with both a diocesan director in their diocese and the Laudato Si’ Advocates Program Coordinator. Interested individuals are encouraged to apply now! Applications for Fall 2021-Spring 2022 received after June 6th will be considered on an as-needed basis.
