Laudato Si’ Animator Activity

April 10, 2019

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, a Laudato Si’ Animator is helping her community embrace care of creation by hosting a week-long tree planting activity. At the nursery school of the Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of our Lady of Africa in Bukavu, DR Congo, teachers and children are planting trees in the gardens after class breaks.

Planting trees

Approximately 195 boys and girls are participating. They are not only taking action, but also inspiring their community. They are learning how trees protect the planet and reflecting on the message of Laudato Si’ to care for our common home.

These children are sending us a message that every single action matters. We pray for them. You can do the same. Organize a tree-planting event for Earth Day. Learn more here.
