The Sisters of Charity Halifax discerned Laudato Si’ upon its release in summer 2015. Immediately inspired by the encyclical’s message on reducing climate change, the Sisters created a resource guide for meaningful action. Titled Lightening Our Carbon Footprint for the Congregation, the guide focused on best practices for living a life of simple practices for change. The Sisters continued to share the message of Laudato Si’ in Congregation newsletters and various other communications points.
