Cry of the Earth and Cry of the Poor

   - Aug 5

Join us for the national launch of the Social Justice Statement 2021-22: Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor. This is the only statement where all the Bishops of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC) release a joint reflection on a particular topic annually. This year it focuses on why it is so important that we as a community respond to the Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor.

All are welcome to the launch of the statement which will take placeonline at 5:30pm-6:30pm on the 5th of August, AEST.Register here

You will hear from guest speakers including Bishop Vincent Long Van Nguyen OFM Conv, Chair of the ACBC Bishops Commission for Social Justice, Mission and Service. He will respond to our launch speaker and you will have the opportunity to ask your own questions about the statement and the inputs provided at the launch.

The statement Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor focuses on building the theological foundations of caring for our common home and our human family. It will also serve as a launch pad for the ACBC’s 7-year journey towards the Laudato Si’ Goals, creating a wholly sustainable Australian church.

To bring the statement to life, prayers, reflections, an action card and other resources are available for parishes, schools, communities and diocese to use in their contexts.
