National Migration Week

National Migration Week focuses on Welcoming Christ in the Migrant:
As the political debate over immigration reform and border security heightens around the country, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) will highlight the need for solidarity with migrants, immigrants, refugees, human trafficking victims and other displaced individuals during National Migration Week, Jan. 7-13.

The theme for this year’s migration week is Welcoming Christ in the Migrant, which marks the 26th year of the annual observance.
