World Refugee Day 2023

Today is World Refugee Dayan international day designated by the United Nations to honor refugees around the globe. It falls each year on June 20 and “celebrates the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home country to escape conflict or persecution.”
World Refugee Day is an occasion to build empathy and understanding for their plight and to recognize their resilience in rebuilding their lives.
The US Conference of Catholic Bishops offers these resources to help refugees. This includes outreach, education, advocacy, and donations.

Catholic Relief Services offers this prayer for refugees.
