The Holy Father designates each New Year's Day as a special opportunity for the universal Church to pray for a year of greater peace, respect for life and social justice. This year's theme is "Migrants and refugees: men and women in search of peace." Join us a we pray for all those fleeing their homelands from war and hunger, discrimination, persecution, poverty and environmental degradation. We will pray too for the resolve to not view migrants as a threat but as an opportunity to build peace.
