Laudato Si’ & Earth Bingo

Sister Ade Kroll asks: “What is Pope Francis asking us to do in his Laudato Si’? How are we challenging ourselves to care for our home, Planet Earth?”

An enthusiastic soul with a highly creative spirit, Sister Ade has a long, loving relationship with nature and all of God’s creatures. The pope’s encyclical spoke directly to her heart, so she created this educational tool to help people find their own Earth Actions. Oftentimes we enjoy learning, yet sometimes we don’t follow-through with an honest-to-goodness action from what we learn. Let’s play Earth Bingo to take the next step.

The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota, is a community of Catholic women religious who follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ, walking in the footsteps of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi. We believe that the living of a poor, simple and prayerful community life is a ministry of presence and witness. Our doors are open to the public to celebrate Mass in Sacred Heart Chapel and to benefit from the St. Francis Music Center and St. Francis Health & Recreation Center. We welcome those who wish to join us as sisters, associates, volunteers, transfer sisters, friends and donors.
