Canisius to Host Laudato Si’ Earth Day Celebration

Canisius College will commemorate the 52nd anniversary of Earth Day on Friday, April 22, with a campus-wide celebration.  Events surrounding Laudato Si’ Earth Day begin at 9:30 a.m. and continue through 2:00 p.m., and will feature students, faculty and staff involved in various sustainability initiatives.  Laudato Si’ (“be praised”) is the title of a Vatican-led initiative to empower the universal Church to achieve total sustainability within seven years.  Canisius College was one of the first universities in the United States to commit to the sustainability initiative, which was inspired by Pope Francis’ 2015 ecological encyclical, “Laudato Si’: On Care for our Common Home.”
