Message from Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB
The theme of Pope Francis’ letter on the occasion of the “100th World Day of Migrants and Refugees” is Migrants and Refugees: Towards a Better World.
In his letter, Pope Francis reminds us that “Each individual is a part of humanity and, with the entire family of peoples, shares the hope of a better future.”
Please join us at the Holy Rosary Cathedral on Sunday January 19th at 2:30pm to celebrate Mass as a universal church. As we gather, we will pray that our hearts will allow us to show love and compassion for all migrants and refugees.
