Laudato Si’ Week 2023

Again this year, the Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand, Indiana will join the worldwide Catholic community in responding to Pope Francis’ appeal to participate in Laudato Si’ Week, an annual event that is part of a seven-year journey toward sustainability and integral ecology. In 2021, Laudato Si’ Week was initiated to mark the anniversary of Pope Francis’ Encyclical on care for our common home.

This week is part of the Sisters’ ongoing engagement with the Laudato Si’ Goals: to care for our common home; to respond to the cry of the poor; to engage in ecological economics; to practice ecological spirituality; to participate in ecological education; to adopt more sustainable lifestyles; and to support community resilience and participatory action.

Those interested in participating in any of these programs and requesting more information may email Sister Jean Marie Ballard at or call 812-367-1411.
