National Migration Week 2011

nationalmigrationwk

Resources are now available for National Migration Week, which is January 2-8, 2011. Echoing Pope Benedict XVI’s 2011 World Day of Migrants and Refugees Message, the U.S. bishops will focus on migrant families for the 2011 Week. A poster, prayer card, and bulletin insert focusing on the economic crisis, underdevelopment, and the stresses and strains of migration on families, can be found here.  Parishes are encouraged to celebrate this day with the families of their own communities who have migrated to the United States. Poster created and designed by Brother Mickey McGrath.
