Last Sunday in September

At the request of various Bishops’ Conferences, the Holy Father has moved the World Day of Migrants and Refugees to the last Sunday of September. Thus, the next World Day of Migrants and Refugees, the 105th, will be celebrated on Sunday, September 29, 2019. This was announced on November 20, 2018, by Greg Burke, director of the Vatican Press Office.

As usual, the text of the Holy Father’s Message will be released some months before the World Day. Burke said.

Pope Francis celebrated a special Mass for Migrants, at the Altar of the Chair, in St. Peter’s Basilica on July 6, 2018,  the fifth anniversary of his visit to Lampedusa.
