World Day for Migrations and Refugees – September 18-24, 2023
National Migration Week 2023
“Free to chooses whether to migrate or stay”
National Migration Week is a uniquely US-based celebration that builds on the ideas put forth in World Day for Migrants and Refugees and shaped accordingly to the American public. This year we will celebrate National Migration Week, September 18-24 which culminates in World Day for Migrants and Refugees on Sunday the 24th. You are invited to see what works best for your parish community in commemoration of this week.
