World Day of Migrants and Refugees: Sant'Egidio celebrates with immigrants

The events and celebrations on the occasion of the Day. ALL THE EVENTS

printable version

This year, the 100th World Day of Migrants and Refugees will be celebrated on 19 January. The Day has its origins in 1914, a few months before the outbreak of the First World War, when Pope Pius X, touched by the tragedy of millions of Italians emigrated abroad since the beginning of the century, called on all Christians to pray for migrants.

A century has passed since then, yet the migration phenomenon is more present than ever. The Community of Sant'Egidio, always close to those who come to our country in search for a better life, with the Peace People movement, will celebrate the Day with a series of initiatives and celebrations in different cities.
