“Assisi: Terra Laudato Si’” is a collaborative project between the diocese, the Franciscan families (OFM, Conventuals, Capuchins, Roman VI), the Laudato Si’ Citadel (formerly known as the “Cittadella” of Pro Civitate Christiana), FAI, and the municipality of Assisi. The project is facilitated by the Laudato Si’ Center, home of the Laudato Si’ Movement located within the Laudato Si’ Citadel.
On Pentecost 2023, the project was announced by Bishop Sorrentino and blessed by Cardinal Czerny in a celebration in the Garden of the Canticle.
