Your Eminence, Your Excellency,
Most Reverend Mother, Most Reverend Father,
Esteemed Heads of Episcopal Commissions, religious Congregations,

Dear Sister, dear. Brother,

On 24 May 2020, on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the encyclical Laudato si’, Pope Francis announced a Special Laudato Si’ Anniversary Year which runs from  24  May this year until  24 May next year. The Holy Father invited “all people of goodwill to adhere to it, to take care of our common home and our more fragile brothers and sisters “. We are pleased to bring to your kind attention the program drawn up by the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development for the celebration of this special anniversary year. This program is available in various languages on the Dicastery’s website and on the website dedicated to the Laudato Si’ Anniversary Year (www.laudatosiyear.org). It is an open-ended program that will be constantly updated. We also plan to consolidate our collaboration with various partners in order to realize this program.

Further information can be requested by email: laudatosi@humandevelopment.va

It is wonderful to see that there are so many beautiful initiatives springing up around the world in response to Pope Francis’ invitation. We hope that our program will be at the service of these initiatives, and may help in networking them and offering them greater visibility.

We ask you to kindly help us to make this program better known in all our communities.

Praying to the Almighty Creator to bless you and accompany you, we take the occasion to confirm our closeness and availability.
