Pope Francis' challenge for the 108th World Day of Migrants and Refugees

Pope Francis released a video with a special challenge for the 108th World Day of Migrants and Refugees. The Pope called for active participation from people—inviting them to reflect on how they can participate in the mission of inclusion.

All Catholic immigrants and refugees are revitalizing ecclesial communities that welcome them. The diversity of faith expressions and devotions is an opportunity to grow in Catholicism. How do you think we can make migrants and refugees more of a participant in our community?

In his fifth video of the campaign promoting the Migrants and Refugees Section, the Pope challenged people to send in videos explaining how they can help build a future that is welcoming and open to migrants.

Pope Francis stressed the importance of being inclusive to different nationalities, faiths, and backgrounds because this diversity can enrich and revitalize church communities. 

The Migrants and Refugees Section, founded in 2017, responds to the Pope's call to give special attention to those who are marginalized, forgotten, and displaced.
