This World Refugee Day, we recognize the many children in the world who want nothing more than to return to their homes

This World Refugee Day, which takes place on June 20, 2017, is a day to raise awareness about both the plight of refugees around the world, and those who have been resettled successfully. According to to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, we are experiencing the largest refugee crisis since World War II with over 65 million refugees, forcibly displaced from their homes.
