106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees
Sunday, September 27th


The Church has been celebrating the World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR) since 1914. It is always an occasion to express concern for different vulnerable people on the move; to pray for them as they face many challenges; and to increase awareness about the opportunities that migration offers. As the title for his annual message, the Holy Father has chosen "Forced like Jesus Christ to flee" to focus on the pastoral care of internally displaced people (IDPs).
