September 10, 2020: Prayer Vigil for World Day of Migrants and Refugees

In the midst of our pandemic, struggles with civil unrest, protests, and racism, other major issues tend to drop from our view. One such issue is Immigration and Migration.  Pope Francis has released his message for the World Day of Migrates and Refugees which is to be commemorated on Sunday, September 27, 2020. In Omaha, we are invited to join with our brothers and sisters worldwide in person or in spirit:
                          Called to Remember!  106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees

  • There are over 70 million refugees across the globe.
  • Pope Francis reminds us that immigrants and refugees are “Forced like Jesus to flee”.
  • Displaced children and families are separated, suffer and die fleeing from war, violent assaults, economic hardship and environmental degradation across the world.
