Logo for Laudato Si Centre RevealedTuesday 3rd August 2021
The Diocese of Salford has unveiled an eye-catching new logo for its pioneering hub for effective action on climate change: the Laudato Si’ Centre.
Named after Pope Francis’ enlightening 2015 encyclical, Laudato Si’, this innovative project aims to be a flagship enterprise for environmental sustainability.
Over the past few months, the diocese has been working with schools to create an inspiring logo to represent the project, with more than 500 children and young people submitting designs of what the Laudato Si’ Centre meant to them.
The winning entry from Burnley’s St Mary Magdalene RC Primary School pupil, Max, was announced in April this year, with special mentions also going to Sebastien from St Charles RC Primary School in Swinton, and Abigail from Barlow RC High School in Manchester.

Taking inspiration from the winning the design, the diocese has now revealed its vibrant new logo, ahead of the project’s launch later this year.
Dr Emma Gardener, head of environment for the Diocese of Salford said: “It’s been such a privilege working with schools on this exciting project and we would like to thank all of the schools and children who put so much thought and effort into their wonderful designs.
“We’re very excited to be finally able to reveal our new logo for the Laudato Si’ Centre and we look forward sharing further updates with you very soon.”
Bishop John announced the Laudato Si’ Centre initiative in 2019, after issuing parishes and schools across the Diocese of Salford with a challenge to take action on the climate crisis by making small changes to their everyday lives.
Responding to the challenge in his own way, Bishop John announced he would be transforming grounds of his Wardley Hall residence into an impressive environmental hub, designed to help people learn more about how to make practical changes to tackle climate change and preserve our planet for future generations.
