Mission:
To implement the Action Plan created for the Pope Francis environmental encyclical Laudato Si at St. John Neumann.
Select Here to Link to Laudato Si

Background: The Action Plan was created by a team of scientists from the University of Georgia (UGA) who believe that caring for creation is a moral imperative and that the Pope is an important moral voice in the world.  The idea was developed by St. John Neumann parishioner Susan Varlamoff who recently retired from UGA and leads the SJN Creation Care Team.  These scientists understand the power of the pulpit and see the opportunity to create a movement among the faithful to reverse the effects of climate change and environmental degradation.

What is it? The Action Plan is a series of practices that can be done in all houses of worship and by members of various faiths.  It is divided into the following 10 chapters:

  • Parish Activities
  • Energy Conservation and Efficiency
  • Purchasing and Recycling
  • Transportation
  • Water Conservation
  • Buying and Sharing Food
  • Creating Sustainable Landscapes
  • Assisting Climate Vulnerable Populations
  • Making Laudato Si for Young People
  • Political Action
