Engaging Laudato Si

JPIC promoters five-day workshop

Over 150 committed and enthusiastic participants were engaged in the JPIC promoters five-day workshop Engaging Laudato Si'.

The workshop featured the work of 22 presenters who spoke at sessions in relation to their work. Each day featured discussion themes important to JPIC such as integral ecology, religious life, ministry, encounter and dialogue. The methodology of See (Assess)-Judge (Discern)-Act (Transform) was woven throughout these days. Catholic Social Teachings were highlighted in Laudato Si', Fratelli Tutti and other church documents. The important work with the Dicastery Promoting Integral Human Development and the United Nations was also interconnected.

Now the challenge to the participants is to develop an action plan. These are to be shared on March 10 from 2 pm to 4 pm in EN and ES. This session is open for others to gain valuable insights from these experiences.

The next JPIC Formation Workshop is scheduled for November 29 to December 3, 2021. The ability to reach JPIC promoters worldwide using the e-learning platform online provides a way to share the JPIC mission with a larger audience and more congregations.

Resources are available only to workshop participants.
