The theme chosen by Pope Francis for the upcoming World Day of Migrants and Refugees is “Welcoming, protecting, promoting, and integrating migrants and refugees.” (To read His Holiness’ full message, click here) As Christians, “we have the unique opportunity to advocate and support the concrete actions [to welcome, protect, promote, and integrate our migrant and refugee neighbours],” and to share this message with all, especially our political and social leaders.

On January 21, 2018, the 104th World Day of Migrants and Refugees Mass will be celebrated by Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB at St. Patrick Parish in Vancouver. This is a family event! To participate in the preparation of this special day, contact
