Statement of Commitment to Laudato Si' Action Platform


The Sisters of Saint Dominic of Blauvelt, New York are grateful for the

call of Pope Francis to Hear the Cry of Earth and the Cry of the Poor.


The Vatican’s 7-year Laudato Si’ Action Platform calls the worldwide Catholic community and “all men and women of good will” (LS 3) to publicly engage in the work of transformation through integral ecology.


Integral ecology understands that the ecological crisis we are facing is global and consists of various interconnected problems such as climate change, biodiversity loss, soil loss, air and water pollution, plastic pollution, poverty and environmental destruction caused by war, fossil fuels and capitalism.


The Sisters of St Dominic publicly commit to the 7-year process of transformation

by strategically engaging the 7 goals of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform.
