Encounter Water

Prayer

As Catholics, we recognize that prayer guides our actions, it binds us in solidarity to one another, and connects us more deeply with the grace that flows from God.

"Access to safe drinkable water is a basic and universal human right, since it is essential to human survival and, as such, is a condition for the exercise of other human rights." - Pope Francis, Laudato Si, No. 30

2.3 billion people gained access to improved drinking-water between 1990–2012. (World Health Organization, 2014)

1 in 9 people still lack access to safe water today. (World Health Organization and UNICEF, 2014)
