    Laudato Si' FREE Workshop Offering
    In June of 2015, Pope Francis issued his encyclical Laudato Si': On Care for our Common Home, which calls all Catholics to more fully answer the call to care for others and for God's creation. Our faith commits us to participate in public life and work for the common good, to recognize the dignity of the human person, and to work for those on the margins. In answer to this call, a group of Catholic parishes, schools and organizations in western Washington have come together to support one another in living out the vision of the encyclical. We are offering FREE WORKSHOPS for interested parishes, schools and other Catholic communities in the Archdiocese of Seattle, offering ideas, tools and resources to help you embrace the spirit of the encyclical. We will come to you! To take advantage of this offering, contact us.

    Grateful for your service,
    Your Missions Office at missions.office@seattlearch.org
