The Laudato Si’ Action Platform is a unique collaboration between the Vatican, an international coalition of Catholic organizations, and “all men and women of good will.”
Under the leadership of Sister Sharon Zayac, a committee of Springfield Dominican Sisters and Associates will oversee the congregation’s process of moving toward sustainability in the seven areas of concern as outlined in the Pope’s encyclical Laudato Si': responding to the cry of the Earth, responding to the cry of the poor, ecological economics, adoption of sustainable lifestyles, ecological education, ecological spirituality, and community action.

You are invited to participate in the evangelizing mission of our Sisters serving in San Juan de Jarpa Parish, a remote Andean village in the Archdiocese of Huancayo where the archbishop wrote these encouraging words about our sisters.
You see, the convent our sisters have occupied for 20 years was built in 1930, and has suffered much in the rugged Andean climate. Seven years ago, after a few days at the center house in Lima, the sisters returned home to a missing roof and a falling wall. Stop-gap repairs were made but everyone, including Cardinal Barreto, knew more needed to be done.
While it took several years to raise funds for the repairs, when the cardinal called the sisters in Jarpa with the good news, they were truly grateful, but had to ask: How could they live in a new building while the parish center—the heart of the community—remained in such poor condition?
