“Towards an Ever WIDER We”: Reliving the WDMR with Pope Francis

“Towards an Ever WIDER We”: Reliving the WDMR with Pope Francis

The celebration of this year’s World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR), on Sunday 26 September, is now a happy memory. The words of Pope Francis in the Angelus in St. Peter’s Square, in ardent affection and support for migrants, refugees and those who assist them, continue to inspire us. 

We have created a video to preserve and share the beautiful highlights of that Day. In addition to the Holy Father’s words, it shows scenes from celebrations of the WDMR in various parts of the world as well as in Rome.


We also take this opportunity to include a new Advent calendar to mark our path towards Christmas while continuing to live the Holy Father’s WDMR Message.

In this folder you will find the calendar to download and print. You are also encouraged to post each day of the calendar on social media. Please remember to tag us!

All the materials produced by the Migrants and Refugees Section during the communication campaign for WDMR will remain current and available on the Section’s website. In addition, if you want to send us photos, videos, or other material about your own WDMR events, please send them to: media@migrants-refugees.va
