Laudato Si'

In 2015, Pope Francis shared his encyclical, Laudato Si’ — teaching the world that care for the things of the earth is necessarily bound together with our care of one another, especially the poor. CHA, in response, has produced several resources — videos, articles, reflection resources — to help Catholic health ministry consider our calling in light of the Holy Father's message.
