Share the Journey campaign urges Catholics to connect with migrants

A Rohingya refugee woman waited for aid with her grandson inside a temporary shelter Sept. 19 at a camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.

WASHINGTON — A prayer here, a share on social media there, a voice of support in a letter to the editor, even a get-to-know-others potluck.

Supporting refugees and migrants can take many forms, and Pope Francis is hoping Catholics around the world will act over the next two years to encounter people on the move.

In the U.S., the Church's leading organizations have developed a series of activities, including prayers, that families, parishes, schools and individuals can undertake throughout the Share the Journey campaign the pope opened Sept. 27 at the Vatican.
