World Day of Migrants and Refugees
This Sunday 14 of January is the 104th World Day of Migrants and Refugees. This January observance was instituted by Pope Saint Pius X in 1914.
The theme chosen by Pope Francis for this year 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”
I am so grateful to Casa el Norte, Chez Marie and those parishes and individuals that are assisting refugees and migrant workers to find a welcoming home in our diocese.
