Bob Richter, a retired priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, chairs this working group, following Michael Agliardo SJ, who coordinated a team writing homily helps. Each Sunday's scriptures are coordinated with Laudato Si' for the three year lectionary cycle, in English and Spanish. Bob Bonnot is the AUSCP Leadership Team Liaison.
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.
