NFPC has been asked to circulate information about an upcoming campaign that will focus on the global plight of migrants, most of whom are children. The effort is being spearheaded by Caritas Internationalis, a worldwide confederation of Catholic relief and social service organizations that operate in over 200 countries and territories.
In the United States the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Catholic Charities USA, and Catholic Relief Services are sponsoring the effort called “Share the Journey.”
Three dates of importance:
Sept. 5 – Launch of an official website with resources for parishes, schools, universities, national organizations, and other groups.
Sept. 27 – The official launch of “Share the Journey” in Rome by Pope Francis.
Oct. 7-13 – Week of Prayer and Action across the US.
