Mass Honoring the 106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees

September 27, 2020 | 7:00 pm

On September 27, 2020, please join us in person or online for Mass to reflect and pray for host communities, migrants and survivors of human trafficking in honor of the 106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees.  In partnership with Campus Ministry at St. Thomas University, we join the Holy Father in prayers for durable solutions, spiritual care, and the integration of internally displaced persons – including survivors of human trafficking – into a receiving society.

This year’s theme, “Forced like Jesus Christ to Flee,” calls us to focus on welcoming, protecting, promoting and integrating vulnerable people on the move, including the 41.3 million people internally displaced worldwide.  Forced out of their homes, livelihoods, villages and cities and internally displaced, people on the move due to poverty, conflict and various humanitarian emergencies, because of weather and more aggravating circumstances of climate change, or other desperate situations are particularly vulnerable to exploitation of all sorts, including human trafficking.  The Mass will conclude a series of events for the 106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees happening throughout September.

All faiths are invited to join us as we promote this year’s theme of the Migrants and Refugee Section of the Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development at the Vatican, and we encourage the local and global community:
