Pope Francis has invited all of us to join in the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation on Tuesday, Septmber 1. The day offers individuals and communities “a precious opportunity to renew our personal participation in this vocation as custodians of creation.” Catholic Relief Service and Ave Maria Press invite you to pray this Prayer to Care for Our Common Home from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

CRS is using this opportunity to launch the first of what will be their new seven part CST 101 video series. This video, “CST 101 Care for God’s Creation” is just the beginning of the expanding catechetical resources CRS is creating for the future! A video for each principle of Catholic Social Teaching will be complete by the Spring of 2016. Also look for these resources to be included in the electronic version of Foundations for Catholic Social Teaching: Living as a Disciple of Christ (Ave Maria Press, 2015).
