The Church has celebrated the World Day of Migrants and Refugees each year since 1914. This is an occasion for the Church and people of faith to reflect upon the role migration has played in our tradition, express concern for migrants, refugees, and people on the move, and build awareness about the challenges and opportunities migration presents.
The"Papal Messages of the World Day of Migrants and Refugees" compiled by CLINIC covers the rich history of statements issued by the Holy Father from 1995 to the present.
