On Sept. 27, 2017, Pope Francis launched a Global Migration Campaign to support our brothers and sisters who have fled their homes seeking a decent and safe life for their families. Organized by Caritas Internationalis, the two-year “Share the Journey” campaign seeks to promote a “culture of encounter” and aims to increase opportunities for migrants and communities to come together and learn about each other.
