Migrant and Refugee Kit Poster150In his message for the 101st World Day of Migrants and Refugees, 2015, Pope Francis chose the theme “Church without frontiers, Mother to all” calling us to care for the most vulnerable in our world, particularly migrants and refugees.

To help celebrate Migrant and Refugee Week from 24-30 August 2015, the Australian Catholic Migrant and Refugee Office has published a kit which includes Pope Francis' Message for the World Day of Migrants, a message from Bishop Vincent Long Van Nguyen, himself a refugee, and homily notes and prayers of the faithful for use on Migrant and Refugee Sunday.
