To mark the fifth anniversary of his encyclical Laudato Si′: On Care for Our Common Home, Pope Francis declared May 16–24 “Laudato Si′ Week.” This is a slide presentation of our exhibit from May 2016 celebrating the one year anniversary of that document. Art was created by seven sisters and one priest of the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
