USCCB Celebrates National Migration Week 2023

Usccb

For over 40 years, the Catholic Church in the United States has celebrated National Migration Week (NMW), which has traditionally been linked to the Vatican’s World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR). This year WDMR occurs on September 24, 2023, with NMW taking place the week preceding it (September 18-24). As in years past, NMW will use the theme chosen by the Holy Father for his World Day of Migrants celebration: “Free to choose whether to migrate or to stay”. This theme calls attention to the conviction that persons have a right not to migrate, and if a person does migrate, it should be done by choice rather than by necessity.
