This year, the World Day of Migrants and Refugees will be celebrated on 26 September. Catholics worldwide are called upon to remember those displaced by conflict and persecution.
The last Sunday of September of every year is the Vatican’s World Day of Migrants and Refugees.
The World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR) is always an occasion to express concern for many different vulnerable people on the move; to pray for the challenges and increase awareness about the opportunities that migration offers.
Pope Francis chose “Towards An Ever Wider ‘We'” as the theme for the 107th World Day of Migrants and Refugees.
