The Holy See's pastoral office will celebrate the World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR) on Sunday, September 26. The theme chosen by Pope Francis for WDMR 2021 is "Towards an ever wider "we."
Responding to the Pontiff's call, the Migrants and Refugees Section is taking steps to move forward on our shared journey to ensure that "after all this, we will think no longer in terms of 'them' and 'those', but only 'us.'"
The Migrants & Refugees Section is personally directed by Pope Francis, working to help the Church worldwide to accompany vulnerable people on the move, including those who are forcibly displaced by conflict, natural disaster, persecution or extreme poverty, refugees and victims of human trafficking.
In his new video, the Holy Father tells us not to be afraid to dream; rather, we should dream together as a single human family.

In the days leading up to September 26, the Migrants and Refugees Section is happy to receive written or multimedia stories, videos and photographs from local churches and other Catholic institutions whose pastoral care for the most vulnerable demonstrates their shared commitment "towards an ever wider 'we'."
