Become a LiveSimply award community

Inspired by the Pope’s encyclical Laudato Si’? Want to put your faith into action?

The LiveSimply award enables you to strengthen the bonds of community, nourish your spiritual life and care for God’s gift of creation. Is an opportunity for Catholic communities – parishes, schools, religious orders and chaplaincies – to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation in Laudato Si’ to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us”.

What is the LiveSimply award?

The LiveSimply award is earned by communities and schools who can show how they have been living:

  • Simply
  • In solidarity with people in poverty
  • Sustainably with creation.

The award celebrates what you have already done and inspires you to do more. It helps your community to live, not just more simply, but also more fully.
