Headline: AMERICA/COLOMBIA – Week of Migrants and Refugees: appeal to the commitment of Christians
Bogotà – In the context of the Week of Migrants and Refugees, which is celebrated from September 23 to 29, the Catholic Church of Colombia reiterates its call to “respond generously and wisely to this situation in which many people live”. Recalling the four verbs of Pope Francis on the reality that thousands of migrants and refugees live in the world, the Bishops recall the Christian commitment to “welcome them, protect them, promote them and integrate them”. The theme of the Week is taken from the Pope’s Message for this Day: “It is not just about migrants”.
