Caring for Our Common Home -- Liturgy Resources Group

Purpose: To promote knowledge and reception of Pope Francis' seconnd encyclical through provision of homily helps for every Sunday of the three year liturgical Sunday and to support other efforts by AUSCP members and others.

Members of AUSCP teamed up with the Catholic Climate Covenant to create weekly homily helps. They break open the Sunday Scriptures, drawing on Catholic social teaching and care for creation. They offer insight and perspective with quotations from Scripture, commentary and passages from Laudato Si’ , and include suggested prayers of the faithful.
