Laudato Si’ is an encyclical of Pope Francis published in May, 2015. It focuses on care for the natural environment and all people, as well as broader questions of the relationship among God, humans and the earth. Laudato Si’ means “praise be to you,” which is the first line of a canticle by St. Francis that praises God with all of His creation.

Sacred Heart on the Lake Retreat Center is located at 194 Candlewood Hill Road in Higganum. Please let us know you’re coming. Call Sr. Lany Jo at 203-606-9102 or email info@sacredheartonthelake.org
