Pope Francis plans to mark two historic milestones this year:
- Issuing a rare “encyclical” (a letter of guidance to the whole church) – the first to focus primarily on climate change and human responsibility for the environment.
- Visiting the United States and addressing a joint session of Congress – the first Pope ever to do so.
Please consider being part of these historic events by joining in a letter welcoming Pope Francis and his leadership on climate change. To join the letter, click here.
