The theme for National Migration Week 2018, “Many Journeys, One Family,” draws attention to the fact that each family has a migration story, some recent and others in the distant past.

Regardless of where we are and where we came from, we remain part of the human family and are called to live in solidarity with one another.

For nearly a half-century, the Catholic Church in the United States has celebrated National Migration Week, which is an opportunity for the Church to reflect on the circumstances confronting migrants, including immigrants, refugees, children, and victims and survivors of human trafficking.
