Celebrated on the 27th of September, Migrant and Refugee Sunday is a time when the whole church throughout the world celebrates the resilience and contribution of migrants and refugees to the church and society. It is also a time where we bring awareness to the issues Migrants and Refugees face.
We are currently in a crisis within our diocese due to COVID-19. Thousands of people seeking asylum and on temporary visas in our diocese have lost their jobs or are relying on organisations like Jesuit Refugee Serviceand House of Welcome for income, housing and food bank support. We as Catholics are called to be in solidarity with our brothers and sisters through prayer, sharing their stories and action.
Pray, share, act and advocate.
