The Mercy Hub welcomes you to join our Laudato Si Circle. This Circle is offered to empower you in your ecological journey, to build community, and to help you implement the themes of Laudato Si in your life.
See the flyer below for more information.
The Mercy Hub is taking the journey of exploring the Seven Laudato Si Goals (image right). These seven goals redefine our spiritual and cultural relationship with our common home while also acknowledging the human roots of the ecological crisis.

The Season of Creation provides the church and the wider community an opportunity to renew our relationship with creation and celebrate our common home. In this spirit, the Mercy Hub hosted weekly contemplative sessions, the Comfortable Cuppa, and we were joined by friends across Australia and Cambodia to support each other’s journey of ecological awakening.
These sessions deepened our understanding of the theme ‘A Home for All’ and explored diverse topics, from honouring the ancient wisdom of indigenous peoples to participating meaningfully in the impact economy. Sharing knowledge and engaging in discussion encouraged us to better integrate nature into our consciousness and to act on the climate emergency. As one of our speakers, Mary Tinney rsm, shared with us, “We need to take the science seriously… we’ve done it for Covid-19, and we need to do if for climate change.”.
As we continue to experience the devastating impacts of Covid-19 we may feel disheartened and stagnant, but if we look around we can see that nature is flourishing and ever-changing.
We extend gratitude to our speakers, Veronica Lawson rsm, Mary Tinney rsm, Sally Neaves, Juliet Talarico, Jemima Welsh, and Helen Nolen rsm.
