Pope Francis has issued his Message for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees that will be celebrated officially on 14th January 2018. The theme is: “Welcoming, protecting, promoting and integrating migrants and refugees”.

In his Message the Holy Father invites all believers to engage proactively in the process leading to the 2018 Global Compacts. To promote such involvement, the Migrant & Refugee Section has prepared a document introducing 20 Action Points  which represent the core of the Catholic advocacy towards the Global Compacts, and a pastoral version of the same points (link) to be shared with all those involved in the Church.
