SHARE THE JOURNEY

Pope Francis encourages all to welcome migrants and refugees

Pope Francis launched the worldwide, two-year “Share the Journey” campaign Sept. 27, calling on Catholics and the faithful to encounter migrants and refugees to break down barriers of fear and suspicion and build bridges of understanding and hospitality.

Catholic Charities USA, Catholic Relief Services and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops are part of a global network of Caritas organizations participating in the campaign.  See below for local and national resources, news articles and more about Share the Journey.  For more from the bishops, visit the Share the Journey web page here
