Join this global event, live from Rome.

From Trastevere, Rome, this Sunday, September 26, we will join the 107th World Day of Migrants and Refugees, which this year has as its theme “Towards an ever greater ‘us'”, with the Dialogue “A Home for All”.

Pope Francis calls us to “commit ourselves to restoring our human family,” and we want to do so by listening to the voices of migrants from different parts of the world in this dialogue. In the framework of the Season of Creation, we cannot neglect this call.

The speakers will be His Eminence Cardinal Michael Czerny SJ, Undersecretary of the Section for Migrants and Refugees of the Dicastery for the Service of Integral Human Development; Friar Massimo Fusarelli OFM, Minister General of the Order of Friars Minor; and Tomás Insua, Executive Director of the Laudato Si’ Movement. The dialogue will be moderated by journalist Lucia Capuzzi.

We want to pay special attention to our brothers and sisters who have been forced to leave their countries because of the climate crisis. Because there is an evident connection between the increase in migration and the multiple climatic catastrophes that beset certain regions.

The migrants who will participate are hosted by the community of San Francesco a Ripa, accompanied by the Order of Friars Minor and by the Migrants and Refugees section of the Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development. 

The event is organized by the Office for Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation of the Order of Friars Minor, the Franciscan Network for Migrants and the Laudato Si’ Movement. It will be broadcast in Italian with simultaneous translations into English, Spanish, Portuguese and French.
