Laudato Sí Action Platform

Inspired by the Gospel of Jesus, Saints Francis & Clare of Assisi, and Laudato SI’, the Capuchin friars of the Province of Saint Joseph, together with our partners in ministry, prayerfully enter a seven-year journey towards living an integral ecology grounded by our charism, culture, and reality.

As we attend simply and directly to spiritual and other basic human needs, especially those of people who are poor and oppressed, we will build upon our six values of

  • Hospitality
  • Partnering
  • Joyful Service
  • Justice for all Creation
  • Compassion
  • Empowerment

to promote justice for all.

Guided by the eternal relationship of the Most Holy Trinity, we will continue and expand our efforts and hold onto simplicity and flexibility, while inspiring a focus on systemic change.
