Day of Prayer for Refugees and Migrants

End: 
Sun 18 June 2017

A Day of Prayer for Refugees and Migrants is set aside each year to fall as close as possible to World Refugee Day on 20 June.

In 2017, the Day of Prayer for Refugees and Migrants will fall on Sunday 18 June.

“Do not tire of courageously living the Gospel, which calls you to recognize and welcome the Lord Jesus among the smallest and most vulnerable.”
