U.S. Catholic agencies prepare for “Share the Journey”

Global campaign on migration launched by Pope Francis Sept. 27
 
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – On Sept. 27, Pope Francis launched the worldwide, two-year “Share the Journey” campaign, calling on Catholics and the faithful to “encounter” migrants and refugees to break down barriers of fear and suspicion and build bridges of understanding and hospitality.

Catholic Charities USA, Catholic Relief Services and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops are part of a global network of Caritas organizations participating in the campaign.

Together, they launched a new website ahead of and in support of the global “Share the Journey” campaign. The new campaign website www.sharejourney.org offers ways in which people, parishes, schools and other groups can participate. “Share the Journey” is a call to prayer, to reflection and to action.

CCUSA, CRS and the USCCB are calling on Catholics, parishes, schools, other organizations and all people of good will to participate in the worldwide “Share the Journey” campaign. Through prayers and acts of compassion and support, you can help shape conversations and actions to answer the Gospel call to love our neighbors.
 
In the weeks following the official launch by Pope Francis, CCUSA, CRS and USCCB will use this site to provide resources, engagement opportunities and proposed events.
