Feast of St. Francis Program Materials
The Catholic Climate Covenant offers an annual Feast of St. Francis program guide (with online materials provided) to celebrate in Fall or early October the patron saint of ecology and animals. St. Francis of Assisi cared for the poor and sick, preached to animals, and praised all creatures as brothers and sisters under God. This saintly witness inspired both the name Pope Francis took and his writing of Laudato Si’.
The Catholic Climate Covenant selects a faith and ecology theme for each year’s program offering. They provide everything you need to host a successful program: a ready-made Powerpoint presentation, suggested online video, and prayer/handout materials. All materials are fully based on Catholic Social Teaching and provided online.
You can register to receive more information and resource emails via the Catholic Climate Covenant website. If you are considering hosting a Feast of St. Francis event at your parish or school, please also contact Social Action Office staff Jeff Campbell, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (330) 263-6176. The Social Action Office and your local Catholic Commission will gladly promote your program to nearby parishes!
