2019 World Day of Migrants and Refugees

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

The 105th World Day of Migrants and Refugees will be celebrated on 29 September 2019. The theme of Pope Francis’ Message is “It is not just about migrants“. In his Message, the Holy Father reminds us that “it is not only the cause of migrants that is at stake; it is not just about them, but about all of us, and about the present and future of the human family. Migrants, especially those who are most vulnerable, help us to read the ‘signs of the times’. Through them, the Lord is calling us to conversion, to be set free from exclusivity, indifference and the throw-away culture. Through them, the Lord invites us to embrace fully our Christian life and to contribute, each according to his or her proper vocation, to the building up of a world that is more and more in accord with God’s plan.”
