Pope Francis Announces a special 5th Anniversary year of Laudato Si’

On 24 May 2020, on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the encyclical Laudato si’, Pope Francis announced a Special Laudato Si’ Anniversary Year which runs from 24 May this year until 24 May next year. The Holy Father invited “all people of good will to adhere to it, to take care of our common home and our more fragile brothers and sisters”. We are pleased to bring to your kind attention the program drawn up by the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development for the celebration of this special anniversary year. This program is available in various languages on the Dicastery’s website and on the website dedicated to the Laudato Si’ Anniversary Year (www.laudatosiyear.org). It is an open-ended program that will be constantly updated. We also plan to consolidate our collaboration with various partners in order to realize this program.
