World Day of Migrants & Refugees 2019

The Church has been celebrating the World Day of Migrants and Refugees since 1914.

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.

Every year the WDMR is the last Sunday of September; in 2019 it has been celebrated on September 29th and Pope Francis has chosen the theme “It is not just about migrants” to show up our blind-spots and make sure no one remains excluded from society, whether a long-time resident or someone newly-arrived.
