Building the Future with Migrants and Refugees: a future for all

Building the Future with Migrants and Refugees: a future for all

We’re happy to share with you the new video from Pope Francis for the 108th World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR), which will be celebrated on Sunday, September 25, 2022. 

The Holy Father delves into the sub-theme “A future for all men and women” and asks each one of us the following question: “What does it mean to put the most vulnerable at the centre?”

Alongside Pope Francis, you’ll also find the story of Ana, a migrant who had to leave Venezuela, her land of origin, and built a new life in Ecuador with her family.


We are all invited to respond to Pope Francis’ question! Send us your own contribution by emailing a short video or photo to, or follow us on social media and reply directly to the question posted on it. The best answers will be part of the campaign.

All of the campaign material can be found on the dedicated page by clicking below and can be freely downloaded, published, used, and shared:


Throughout the preparation process, the Migrants & Refugees Section will be happy to receive written or multimedia testimonials and photos from local Churches and other Catholic institutions describing their joint effort for the pastoral care of migrants and refugees.
