Students were invited to participate in our prayer vigil for climate change this lunchtime, making hand prints and then adding a prayer for our Common Home on what they had created. Pupils demonstrated great respect during the prayer vigil, which was just one act carried out by our ND community linked to this year’s mission theme of ‘Laudato Si’.

Laudato Si’ is an encyclical (letter) to every person on our planet, written by Pope Francis in 2015 where he expressed the urgent need for us to ‘care for our common home’, protect our planet and take action. As part of this call, Notre Dame has been inspired to ‘Live Simply’ and this is just one of the many acts that will be carried out in order for our school community to live sustainably with creation and in solidarity with people in poverty.
