National Migration Week runs through Sept. 26

migration week

Diocese of Venice promotion for National Migration Week Sept. 20-26, 2021.

National Migration Week 2021 will be held from Sept. 20-26, 2021, in solidarity with the Holy See’s observation of the World Day for Migrants and Refugees Sept. 26. The theme is “Towards an Ever Wider ‘We’” where Pope Francis calls on us to ensure that “we will think no longer in terms of ‘them’ and ‘those,’ but only ‘us’” (Fratelli tutti, no. 35) and this universal “us” must become a reality first of all within the Church, which is called to cultivate communion in diversity. 

In general, National Migration Week is meant to emphasize the ways in which the migration question is important for the Catholic Church in the United States. 

Throughout the Week, the Diocese of Venice posted information about the week and messages of support on its social media platforms.
