Last month, Pope Francis launched Share the Journey, a campaign to call attention to the plight of migrants and refugees around the world. This initiative, which runs through September 2019, aims to strengthen the relationship between migrants and their local communities. In addition, it seeks to dispel fear and inspire communities to build relationships with those forced to leave their native lands due to violence, oppression, famine, and other hardships.
Please join us in responding to Pope Francis’ call to open our hearts to love our immigrant and refugee neighbors by joining in a “Week of Prayer and Action” from October 7th through October 14th.
We will be praying this Share the Journey Prayer during this time. We will also be sharing posts throughout these days on Facebook,Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #ShareJourney. More information can be found by visiting this link.
We invite you to share information about this week with others and join in praying for immigrants and refugees across the globe that they may overcome the many obstacles facing their path to stability.
