Share the Journey

Bishop Dennis Sullivan (center) launched the Share the Journey campaign alongside Catholic Charities refugee clients and staff in the Camden Diocese on August 27, 2017.

About the Campaign

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Jesus calls us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. On September 27, 2017, Pope Francis launched a two-year “Share the Journey” campaign to support migrants and refugees, as the campaign aims to raise awareness about their plight worldwide. He is calling us to share a journey with our neighbors – all our neighbors, not only those who live near us, look like us, speak like us or pray like us.

Here in the Camden Diocese, our neighbors include many of the world’s most vulnerable people: migrants and refugees fleeing war, poverty and persecution, people who seek nothing more than basic needs and a path forward. Just like us, they are children of God, deserving of dignity and love. We as a church are answering the Pope’s call to encounter and walk with these migrants and refugees in support and solidarity.

Each year in the Camden Diocese, Catholic Charities resettles around 100 refugees from war-torn or post-conflict regions of the world. Be part of a worldwide campaign to reach out to migrants, change perceptions, open hearts and minds, and strengthen the bonds that unite us all.
