In Laudato Sí, Pope Francis has underlined the fundamental connection that exists between the environmental crisis and the social crisis that we are currently experiencing and asks us for a personal and community ecological conversion. He often reminds us “everything is interconnected.” “Sowing Hope for the Planet” is a project in which every Sister whose congregation is a member of UISG, and their connections are provided with an opportunity to make a difference in our care of the planet. This project is a collaborative effort of the JPIC Commission in the name of UISG and the Laudato Si Movement.
The Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development’s Laudato Si’ Action Platform is a space for institutions, communities, and families to learn and grow together. You are warmly invited to join this community. Your unique “culture, experience, involvements, and talents” are needed on our journey towards greater love for our Creator, each other, and the home we share." (LS 14).

Listen to the Cry of the Poor!
The Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood in partnership with the Laarbeek Municipality are hosting Ukrainian Refugees in their Motherhouse in Aarle-Rixtel, the Netherlands. Their convent has been a place of refuge for people in need for many years. In February 2022 after the news of Ukrainian conflict came, the Sisters started to pray. And, with the help of neighbors, began to prepare to host refugees. For more information, click here to see their presentation.
