October week of prayer and action to support immigrants and refugees

September 28, 2017

Pope Francis and bishops around the world are beginning a global campaign to support immigrants and refugees. Sept. 27 was the official launch in Rome by Pope Francis of the two-year campaign, called ‘”Share the Journey.” Participants include Catholic Relief Services, Catholic Charities USA, Caritas Internationalis, and Migration and Refugees Services-USCCB. Following the launch, the U.S. bishops’ conference is calling for a week of prayer and action from Oct. 7-14. An online toolkit has been created to help promote the program across each diocese, parish, and school. It is available at https://justiceforimmigrants.org/caritas-share-the-journey-campaign/. Social media users are encouraged to follow and share the hashtag #ShareTheJourney.
