“Towards an ever wider WE”: Building a We that cares for our common home

“Towards an ever wider WE”: Building a We that cares for our common home

The Migrants and Refugees Section is pleased to bring you the next step forward in our common journey towards the World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR) which will be celebrated on Sunday, 26 September. 

The theme chosen by the Holy Father for WDMR 2021 is Towards an ever wider “we”. In response to his call to ensure that “after all this, we will think no longer in terms of ‘them’ and ‘those’, but only ‘us’”, we are sending you some materials to help build this “we” together.

In his new video, the Holy Father calls upon everyone to take part in a ‘we’ who care for our Common Home.

We meet three Rohingya who demonstrate the importance of living together as brothers and sisters taking care of Creation.


The video, the theological-pastoral reflections and other communication materials, available here, can be downloaded, published, used and shared freely.

In the months leading up to 26 September, the Migrants and Refugees Section is happy to receive written or multimedia stories, videos and photographs from local churches and other Catholic institutions whose pastoral care for the most vulnerable demonstrates their shared commitment “towards an ever wider ‘we’.” Materials can be sent to media@migrants-refugees.va
