Migrant & Refugee Sunday: August 30

“Jesus Christ is always waiting to be recognized in migrants and refugees, in displaced persons and in exiles, and through them he calls us to share our resources, and occasionally to give up something of our acquired riches.”

Pope Francis’ 2015 World Migrant and Refugee Day message

Now is the time to start preparing for Migrant & Refugee Sunday: August 30, 2015.

Some ideas include:
– Encouraging friends to Join the Alliance

– Asking your priest to speak out against the current harsh asylum seeker policies

– Arranging a group to visit your local MP expressing your concerns for people seeking asylum. See Quick tips for visiting your MP

– Start volunteering or arrange something special for a refugee, asylum seeker, migrant family in your community
