World Day of Migrants and Refugees
The theme chosen by Pope Francis for the upcoming World Day of Migrants and Refugees is ‘Welcoming, protecting, promoting, and integrating migrants and refugees.’
‘Every stranger who knocks at our door is an opportunity for an encounter with Jesus Christ, who identifies with the welcomed and rejected strangers of every age.’
We pray this weekend for refugees, for those confined to refugee camps, for those who have come to make their homes with us and for the many people in our parishes and beyond who make it possible to minister to the strangers who sojourn with us.
