Migrants and Refugees Vatican Event – (January 12th to15th, 2017)

The Migration and Refugee Section of the new Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development has announced it is launching its first media campaign, reported Vatican Radio.

It is being launched to coincide with the 103rd World Day for Migrants and Refugees, which is observed this Sunday, January 15th.

While Cardinal Peter Turkson, who had been serving as president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, is leading the new dicastery, Pope Francis for the time being is leading its migration and refugee section. The Pontiff wished to hold this responsibility to show his particular concern during the ongoing refugee crisis.

From January 12th to 15th 2017, the Pope’s tweets will focus on migrants and refugees, and link directly to the section’s Facebook page, which will present a brief story and reflection relevant to each day’s topic.
